Light: Full sun
Water: Water thoroughly and allow top half of soil to dry out between waterings. In winter, water sparingly just to keep the soil from drying out completely. Plant in a pot with drainage holes to prevent root rot.
Humidity: Average indoor (around 40% relative humidity).
Temperature: Average room temperatures 65-75°F/18-24°C. If you move Madagascar palm outdoors for the summer, don’t worry — it can take the heat. Just bring it back in when the temperature drops; it will tolerate a minimum in winter of 40°F/4°C.
Soil: Cactus potting mix works well to provide fast drainage. Or you can use 2 parts all-purpose potting mix with 1 part sharp sand or perlite.
Fertilizer: Feed in spring and summer with a cactus/succulent fertilizer.
Propagation: Sow seeds in spring. Offsets can be cut away from the parent plant and potted up separately.
