To keep your Adonidia Palm healthy, it is important to prune any dead or damaged fronds regularly. This will help the plant to focus its energy on new growth. Additionally, you should protect the plant from strong winds and frost, as these can damage the delicate fronds. Finally, be sure to keep an eye out for pests and diseases, as these can quickly spread and harm the plant.
