This is the second one I’ve had, because the first one got gnats. :( However, these guys are decently hearty

These plants can grow to be massive plants and all the leaves on these look so well all together. I found that these plants can brown quite easily but with high humidity, filtered water and no direct sunlight they will love it

I find it very finicky. Must be closely watched and perfectly watered.

make sure you keep your parlour palms humid and well-watered! they can dry out easily and perish. mine is doing fine but i have to keep a constant eye on her.

Have been struggling to keep this one happy since I acquired it. Didn’t start off well as I know I didn’t give it as much water as it needed and my cats had a field day chewing the leaves. Top leaves browned easily. Could be a case of not sitting in the right location.

This plant currently lives in my bathroom, on a window sill with no direct light. It seems to cope well with my sporadic watering (when I remember too!). No issues with browning leaves as per other comments I’ve seen. Survives well in this environment when other plants really haven’t!

My parlour palm was one of my first ever plants!! It is very tolerant of light as I have experimented a lot with it, it grows very fast, and it is fairly sturdy. The only down side is that with any direct light, the leaves will burn. The leaves brown very easily and will also show the chlorination of the water in its leaves. They’re also very prone to pests so spraying frequently with been oil and checking the leaves is a must.

I have had this Parlour Palm since March/ April. It’s positioned in a room with a south facing window, a meter away from the window. I repotted it since purchasing. I know Parlour Palms are hardy as I work at a place where they have not been well cared for. What I do know they do not like direct sunlight. The leaves brown when exposed to direct sunlight.
