My success story has not been a hard fought battle. I have kept the palm in its original container, lofted on a small pedestal, and sit it in the corner of my bedroom. Knowing that it is a low light plant, I have intentionally placed it behind a window sheer during daylight hours. I water it nightly (more or less) with anywhere from half a liter to a liter of water. Approximately once a week or once every two, I feed it some spray-on plant food from Home Depot which comes from cultivated "worm poop" (their words, not mine). Occassionally, I will prune back the lower branches which brown as it sprouts new, radiant palms above.
No real tricks here, and I have never been known for having a green thumb. I will see how it does getting through its first winter, but public opinion turned out to be incorrect on this buy.
