How to grow?
Level of care
Palms need a bit of extra care compared to other house plants. They are part of the Arecaceae family of plants, and prefer tropical climates. This makes them a bit harder to care for than other indoor plants. However, with adequate light, moisture and nutrients, your palm will thrive well and add the exotic touch to your living spaces for which they are widely loved.
Palms are great indoor plants but by nature they love sunlight. Place your palms in indirect sunlight in front of a window or shaded places outside. Avoid direct sunlight on your palms as this can burn the leaves.
Palms being tropical plants love humidity and heat. The humidity must be as high as possible. To increase the humidity, you may keep it on a pebble tray filled with water.
Pot your palms in well draining soil and water them regularly. The roots of some indoor palms can rot easily if placed in low drainage soils.
It is advised to let the topsoil dry before watering them again.
