Feed South American jelly palm
Trees tend to find a great part of nutrients in the soil, because their roots spread more than ten metres; in any case it is advisable to feed the soil with amendants, to guarantee a good quantity of mineral salts; every 2-3 years, in the spring or autumn, we suggest adding to the soil at the feet of the trunk, about a bucket of mature organic fertilizer.

Care South American jelly palm
The South American jelly palm develops like a tree. This plant in the winter assumes a green colouring; it is small in size and can reach 6 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The South American jelly palm develops long arcuate leaves ; the deportment is typical of palm trees , with a pretty erect stem in the lower part, bringing an arched crown.

Irrigation South American jelly palmTenere asciutto
The young specimens, recently sheltered, need more cures compared to the adult specimens: as the years go by the development of a good radical apparatus allows the plant to be satisfied with the rain, without needing other waterings. Letís water these plants only when the substratum is clearly dry using 1-2 buckets of water ; during this period of the year we should intervene every 4-5 weeks , or even less if the weather is rainy.

Adversity South American jelly palm
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Substrate South American jelly palm
Letís place these trees in a soft and deep, but well drained, soil.
