Use these instructions to care for a Parlor Palm. This guide will tell you how to water your Parlor Palm; its light, temperature, and humidity preferences; and any additional care your plant might need to help it grow.
LIGHT REQUIREMENTSParlor Palms are considered low-light palms, but that doesn't mean "no-light". They prefer bright filtered light, but will adjust to low light areas.
WATER REQUIREMENTSLike many palms, they are sensitive to overwatering and cannot tolerate being waterlogged. Even moisture is ideal, but err on the side of slightly too dry rather than too wet. Water even less during the winter when the plant is not actively growing. Brown leaf tips often indicate over watering, while yellow fronds tell you the plant needs a bit more water.
HUMIDITY PREFERENCEYour Parlor Palm will thrive amazingly well in average humidity.
OPTIMUM TEMPERATUREProtect your palm from cold drafts from windows, air conditioning vents, or doors. This plant can tolerate a low of 50 degrees, but prefers normal room temperatures between 65-80 degrees.
PLANT FOODFertilize only once in the spring with a water soluble fertilizer.
ADDITIONAL CAREYour Palm will benefit from regular mistings a few times a week to boost growth and prevent insect infestations.
TOXICITYCompletely non-toxic to humans and pets.
