Enough water for the soil to be moist six inches down and out to at least the drip line is how much water that queen palm trees [Syagrus romanzoffiana] need. It's important to water before 10 a.m. or after 5 p.m., which is the range outside of the high evaporative rates possible in the full sun that the plant enjoys.

A watering schedule for a recently planted tree may be two or three times a week, depending upon the dryness or wetness of the climate. It may be every 10-14 days once the tree is established.

A soil check can be done along with a visual check. Just put a soil probe or sharp object such as a strong writing instrument, screwdriver or ruler into the soil. The plant is being overwatered if the object comes out muddy. It's being underwatered if the object comes out clean as a whistle. It's appropriately moist if the object is freckled or speckled by soil particles.

The most likely palm you are referring to is Butia capitata, or the pindo palm, also known as the jelly palm. It is usually short and stocky with yellow roundish fruit.
