What are Tropical Trees?
Can Tropical Trees be Grown in Containers?
Most tropical trees can be grown in containers indoors and thrive as houseplants. Tropical plants tend to need a lot of sun, so be sure your potted tropical plant is placed near a sunny window or glass door. Tropical fruit trees can grow and produce well outdoors in pots if they are moved indoors during winter. Read more on Overwintering Citrus Trees.
Can Tropical Palm Trees Grow Indoors?
Sago Palms and Majesty Palms make gorgeous indoor plants. The Majesty Palm tree prefers a sunny, humid spot. Put this plant in a sunny spot, keep the soil moist, and mist it in winter when your home is dry for the best results. The King Sago Palm tree is more flexible; water when the soil is dry and put it in a spot with some sun. It does need some sun but not as much as most tropical trees.
How to Care for Tropical Fruit Trees
Tropical fruit trees, like citrus, require full sun and well-draining, fertile soil. Water these tropical trees when the ground dries out and over the leaves if you are in a dry climate. Feed your citrus trees in early spring and late summer with a slow release fertilizer.
