When this little guy arrived in the mail, I gave him time to acclimate to the apartment(2 days) then watered him. While Parlor Palms do okay in shaded areas, its probably best to keep them near a goo…
I really want to love this plant but it gets crispy so quickly. I live in a dry state, so the leaves dry up pretty fast. It’s in a bright room and does not get direct light. I had one of these before…
I haven’t quite figured out how to make these guys happy yet ... they seem to be extremely sensitive to both under and overwatering, and I have yet to find the balance (though hopefully Greg will hel…
Pet friendly and looks cute in an office! But it’s a little temperamental. If you give it the right care it won’t give you any problems, but I am on my 2nd or 3rd so it took some practice. It really …
Quelly Woo is often mistaken for more of a backup to the “stars” who are more well known, but this silent star is more likely to steal the show. Quelly is largely self sufficient and can assert himse…
I absolutely love my parlour palm. It’s easy maintenance and grows beautifully. It has tripled in size since I first got it. It can brown if it gets too much sun. So that’s something I would watch ou…
Love love love this plant. I’m a big fan of tropical plants but live in and temperate climate so it can get cold in the house. This plant has grown so well even in the cold house and continues to thr…
Tolerant of dry soil, but not dry air. Managed to dry out my first one with lack of a humidifier (really need one for this tropical plant when living in dry weather such as here in Las Vegas)! 🏜
little seeds will start to grow around the base of your plant. don’t be alarmed. i’m not sure if that was common knowledge but i was scared somethibg was wrong 🤣
It’s difficult to know when they want water as they usually have dry soil. However, it’s great for oxidation and from, my experience, not a needy plant at all
How to care for Parlour Palm
Parlour Palm needs 0.5 cups of water every 12 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Parlour Palm may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Select your city to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Parlour Palm in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Parlour Palm after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
