4. Can you grow a Pindo Palm in a container?

Pindo Palms grow well in a container, and they are frequently grown this way owing to the slow growth rate. Importantly, they can be moved indoors during the winter months in cold climates.

To grow a Pindo Palm in a container, choose a pot that is at least 75 cm deep and has drainage holes in the bottom. Fill the pot with a well-draining potting mix. Plant the Pindo palm in the centre of the pot and water it well. Place the palm in a sunny spot and water it regularly, especially during the first year after planting. Fertilize it once a month during the growing season with a balanced fertilizer diluted to half strength.
