Bring the Tropics indoors with a Short Hair Old Man Palm

The short hair old man palm, scientifically known as Coccothrinax crinita, is a small and beautiful palm tree native to Cuba. It forms dense groves in windblown scrub on sandy soils along the coastline. This palm has a slender trunk and an open crown. It is also referred to as "Short Hair" Old Man Palm due to its shorter and less dense leaf sheath fibers covering the trunk.

Here are some key features of the short hair old man palm:

The trunk of this palm is slim, only about 8 inches in diameter, but appears larger due to the thick hair covering. 

Leaf Characteristics: The palmate leaves are dark green and fan-shaped, giving it an attractive appearance.

Growth Habits: It is a solitary palm that grows well in full sun and prefers regularly moist soil, although it is adaptable to drought conditions. It can also tolerate moderate salt levels.

Size: Younger specimens of the short hair old man palm display the "short hair" characteristic, which refers to the smaller size of the seed and the less developed trunk.

Habitat: This palm thrives in sandy soils and can be found along the coastlines of Cuba.

The short hair old man palm is considered a rare and sought-after species in the palm enthusiast community. Its unique features and beautiful appearance make it a desirable addition to gardens and landscapes.

Care and Maintenance

Additional Care and Maintenance Tips

Light, Short Hair Old Man Palm enjoy bright indirect light, they can adapt to lower lighting conditions, however if bright light is available it is optimal and will encourage a higher rate of growth. If outdoors it should remain in shaded areas, direct sun exposure will scorch its delicate leaves.

Water, allow the top 1-2 inch of Soil to dry out, may take 3-4 days, water slowly to allow the soil moist evenly.

Humidity, most Tropical plants can benefit from regular moisture, a humidifier or regular misting is recommended regularly during winter months.

Fertilizing, no need to fertilize right away, We fertilize our plants during the production phase with slow release fertilizer which can last an additional 2-3 months supplying residual nutrients to the plant. Once you do decide to fertilize You may use a fertilizer formulated for interior plants, preferably a slow release fertilizer 180 days duration, fertilize during spring or fall base on label instructions.

PLACEMENT AND TEMPERATURE - Selecting the right location for your plant indoors is very important, micro climates can affect the health of the plant, make sure the plant does not receive air draft from near by AC/Heating vents, or warm air if close to a freezer, the foliage will dehydrate faster than it can hydrate from moisture in the air or in the soil, eventually turning brown and dropping, when plants are properly watered and care for and still display signs of wilting or seem sad it may help to relocate the plant to a different area for brighter indirect light. Please note most tropical plants are from the tropics, proper moisture is required for their health and survival, we highly recommend to bring your tropical plants indoors when temperatures are expected below 45s during winter months or above 90 during summer months, extreme weather can severely damage the plant.
