Palm Plant Care

Palms are a very popular houseplant. This is mainly because their lush, tropical leaves will quickly green up any space!

This is because, fortunately, they all require about the same care. So here are the 3 things you need to get right to be successful at palm plant care!

Palm Plant Care: Light Requirements

Indoor palms can tolerate a wide range of light levels. Keeping this in mind, they do best in medium to bright, indirect light. Do not place them in direct sunlight, though, as their leaves are easily burned by hot, afternoon sun.

Palm Plant Care: Water Requirements

Palms like to be kept lightly moist at all times. The keyword here is lightly! Palms are sensitive to overwatering and will quickly die if it is sitting in water for too long. During the winter, water your palm tree less. This will make up for lower light levels and lower temperatures.

Additional Tips!!!

A big problem with indoor palms is brown leaf tips. This is caused by low air humidity. Make sure to occasionally mist your plant to boost humidity levels. You can also trim off the brown margins, but make sure to leave a thin portion of the brown tip. This thin edge will keep the leaf intact and won’t create a new cut.
