Date Palm - Phoenix Dactylifera | 2.0 - 5.0m

From AED 1,200.00

The Date Palm (Phoenix Dactylifera) is a tall, tropical palm tree known for its sweet, edible fruit. It grows well in full sun and well-drained soil and requires regular watering to maintain a healthy growth. It can tolerate some drought, but prolonged dryness may damage its leaves and fruit production. The date palm can grow up to 20-30 meters tall and has a distinctive feathery crown of leaves. It is a slow-growing species and may take several years to reach its full height. Fertilizing with a balanced palm fertilizer can enhance the growth and fruit production of the date palm.

Plant Care:

  1. Light: Date Palm thrives in bright sunlight. They can also tolerate partial shade, but too much shade can lead to weak growth.
  2. Watering: Date Palms should be kept consistently moist but not waterlogged. Allow the soil to dry out slightly between waterings.
  3. Soil: Date Palms prefer well-drained soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH range. Use a potting mix formulated for palms or a mixture of peat moss, sand, and perlite.
  4. Fertilizer: Date Palms should be fertilized every 2-3 months during the growing season with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer.
  5. Pruning: Prune off yellow or brown fronds to maintain a healthy appearance.
  6. Pests and Diseases: Date Palms are relatively pest and disease-free, but can be susceptible to root rot and scale insects. Keep an eye out for yellowing leaves, which can indicate a problem.
  7. Repotting: Date Palms can become pot-bound, so it’s recommended to repot them into a larger container every 2-3 years, using a well-drained potting mix.
