Default Salt Swept Air

Which palms do well, potted, in ocean air. We have a condo south of Cancun on the coast. Also, which palms would live well indoors with partial exposure to salt air. What do you think of the Madagascar Palm?

Default You have lots of salt tolerant palms to choose from

It depends on the size you would like it to grow? Also if you want it to have a trunk or not? The best indoor palm that can take salt is the European Fan Palm. These Palms can handle the indoor environment as long as enough light is given. The Thatch Palm is another highly recommended palm for the indoors and outdoors with a high tolerant of salt air. There are two palms that are used with the common name Madagascar Palm... Which one would you be referring too?

Another two that will do well would be the Christmas Palm. These Palms do very well indoors and can tolerate mild salt air. I have personally seen these palms by the beach and they get plenty of salt breezes and water, so this would be another palm that would do well.

The Majesty Palm is also another candidate. Does well indoors and out and can tolerate lots of neglect.

All these palms need well draining soil and to be watered once ever other day since the heat will evaporate most of the water in the pot.
