Phoenix Roebelenii, Pygmy Date Palm
Date palms like the brightest light you can provide, including full sun.
Date palms, including pygmy date palms, do best when kept slightly on the dry side. These plants are typically from arid regions and are very sensitive to being overwatered.
A peat-based mix is perfect, with lots of material for drainage. Palms appreciate good drainage to prevent water-logged roots.
