The parlor palm is the quintessential houseplant – the proof is right in the name. Growing a parlor palm tree indoors is ideal because it grows very slowly and thrives in low-light and cramped spaces. It’s also an excellent air purifier. Keep reading to learn how to care for a parlor palm plant.
Growing an indoor parlor palm is very easy and gratifying. Parlor palm houseplants prefer low light and may actually suffer in direct sunlight, so there’s no need to place them in your brightest windows. They do like a little bit of light, and will do best by a window that receives some early morning or late afternoon light.
Thrives in medium to bright indirect light, but can tolerate low indirect light. Not suited for intense, direct sun.
Water every 1-2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light. Water your indoor parlor palm sparingly – underwatering is better than overwatering. Allow the soil to begin to dry between waterings, and water even less in the winter.
Temp & Humidity
The parlor palm prefers room temperatures between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. It can tolerate a low of 50 degrees Fahrenheit but will die if touched by frost. Keep it away from cold drafts near windows, vents, and outside doors. It will thrive with average humidity. If your palm begins to develop dry leaf margins or brown tips, it's most likely caused by cold drafts or prolonged dry periods. To remedy this situation, raise the humidity levels before overwatering.
Feed with a weak liquid fertilizer once or twice during the growing season and not at all during the winter. These plants are light feeders.
The Parlor Palm is a pet-friendly plant.
