General Care Tips

The Cabbage Palm (also known as palmetto, or cabbage palmetto) is highly versatile and will adapt to a variety of sun and soil conditions. It is one of the cold hardiest palms. After transplanting, water well until established. Avoid damaging lower trunk and roots. It is usually not grown indoors. 

Things to Watch For

Insect pests include giant palm weevil, cabbage palm caterpillar and scales. The Cabbage Palm is vulnerable to ganoderma butt rot which enters through trunk and root injuries.
