I have a Madagascar Palm that's about three years old and thirteen inches tall. It currently has about thirty leaves and lives on my patio, where it gets a lot of sun from 3:00 until sunset. It doesn't seem particularly unhappy, but I don't feel like it's making very good progress towards growing into the 6' monolith I'd like it to be either.
Right now it lives in a 10" terra cotta pot in Miracle-Gro soil for potted plants, gets fed leftover orchid food (dilute 30-10-10) every few months, and is watered daily since it's very hot outside. What would you advise changing to make it grow faster, and in an ideal world, at what rate would it be growing?
