The Spindle Palm grows best in moist well drained soil. Do not allow the soil to dry between waterings. Lightly water until the soil becomes a dark color, but not to the point the soil is no longer able to absorb the water. Potting the plant to allow for proper drainage will help guard against over watering. Do not let the soil become soggy.
