Cabbage Palm: Frequently asked questions

What types of Cabbage Palm are there and what determines a good product?

There are two main types of cabbage palms, the Royal Palm and the Queen Palm. The Royal palm is a larger plant with wider leaves than its cousin (Queen). Both have similar growth habits.

The most important thing is to buy a plant that has been grown in good conditions. It should be healthy and have no signs of disease or insect damage, such as holes chewed by caterpillars or discolored leaves caused by mealybugs. Look for plants with the largest crowns possible; these are more likely to grow into large specimens than smaller ones will. If you can find one with multiple trunks, all the better.

Who should use a Cabbage Palm?

Anyone who wants to grow a cabbage palm tree.

Based on what criteria should you buy a Cabbage Palm?

The first thing to consider is where you live. If you live in a colder climate, then the Cabbage Palm will not do well for you. This palm tree likes warm weather and does best when it’s kept at temperatures between 75-85 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and 60-65 degrees Fahrenheit at night (although some people have had success keeping them outside year round). You should also make sure that there are no hard freezes expected within 6 months of purchasing your plant because they can be killed if exposed to freezing conditions too early on after planting. Another important factor is whether or not this species grows outdoors in your area; some areas may only have one variety available while others might offer several varieties depending on what nurseries grow locally. It’s always good to ask before buying.

The first thing you need to look out for is the size of the plant. If it’s too small, then chances are it won’t grow into a nice looking tree and will just die off. You also want to make sure that there aren’t any holes in its trunk or leaves, as this can be an indication of disease or pests which could kill your Cabbage Palm if not treated right away.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a Cabbage Palm?


Cabbage Palms are very easy to grow. They require little maintenance and can tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, including poor drainage. The cabbage palm is also one of the most cold hardy palms in existence; it will survive temperatures as low as -10°F (-23°C). It’s not uncommon for this plant to live over 100 years.


Cabbage Palm is a slow grower and can take up to 15 years before it reaches its full height. It also requires frequent watering, especially during the summer months when temperatures are high. This palm tree does not tolerate cold weather well at all so if you live in an area where there are freezing winters then this plant will need to be brought indoors or planted somewhere that has protection from frosty conditions.
