Phoenix canariensis is an exotic, feather type palm, with a stout trunk and straight, narrow, spiky leaves that grow upwards from a single crown, spreading and arching into elegant fan shapes. It is also known as Slender Date Palm.

With their architectural and tropical profile, Canary Island Date Palms add dramatic impact wherever you put them: anywhere from the corner of a room to an outdoor terrace.

Phoenix canariensis - Canary Island Date Palm Care & Info Guide

Light: Bright, indirect light to partial shade. Some morning or evening sun would be an advantage.

Water: Water when the soil is starting to become slightly dry at the top. Palms don't like sitting in wet soil so do not over-water, however keep moist particularly during the summer. In the cooler months water more sparingly.

Temperature: Versatile across a range of temperatures: anything from -5 to 37°C. During the winter months, if kept indoors, they would benefit from being in a cooler location ideally 10-13°C and away from any drafts and heat sources.

Humidity: Normal conditions, although you could mist from time to time in the warmer months.

Feed: Feed occasionally at half-strength during the warmer months. Do not feed during the winter. View Plant Nutrition

Care Tips: Lower leaves die off as plant grows and new leaves are produced. Remove any dead leaves only once they have dropped below beyond horizontal, which will encourage the trunk to develop. Spines can be sharp so take care whilst handling.

Air Purifying: Palms clean and improve air quality by filtering formaldehyde, benzene and carbon monoxide toxins from the surrounding environment.

Height and Growth Rate: Indoor height approx. 2m. Slow growing. Can reach much higher in their native outdoor environment.

Origin: Canary Islands.
