Water the queen palm deeply and slowly with a soaker hose or let a garden hose trickle at the base of the tree. Provide enough water to soak the soil to a depth of 2 to 3 feet, wetting the soil around the trunk to a width of about 5 feet. Repeat every other week throughout summer, decreasing to every four to six weeks in winter.

This palm has a smooth straight gray trunk ringed with evenly spaced leaf scars and topped with a large canopy of feathery fronds. The fronds are dark green and have double rows of leaflets. This palm is noted for its spectacular clusters of flowers and fruits. The flower clusters burst from large pods during the summer. In early winter, the green fruit clusters appear. The spherical-shaped fruit eventually turns bright orange, hanging in clusters up to six feet in length.
