Photographs are representative of the species and not always of the specific plant shipped. Normal variations in size, pruning and leaf structure may occur.

Sun: Indirect

Parlour Palms prefer bright, indirect sunlight. They thrive in locations with filtered sunlight or partial shade. Direct sunlight can scorch their leaves, so it's best to avoid placing them in direct sunlight for extended periods.

Light: Medium - Low

These plants do well in moderate to low light conditions. They can tolerate lower light levels but may grow more slowly. Aim to place them in a room with ample natural light or supplement with artificial light if necessary.

Water: When half dry

Water your Parlour Palm when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Avoid overwatering, as excessive moisture can lead to root rot. Ensure proper drainage in the pot and empty any excess water from the saucer after watering to prevent waterlogging.

Humidity: Medium

Parlour Palms thrive in moderate to high humidity environments. Increase humidity levels by misting the leaves regularly or placing the plant on a tray filled with pebbles and water. Grouping plants together can also help create a more humid microclimate.

Pet Friendly: Yes

Parlour Palms are considered safe for pets, including cats and dogs. However, it's always a good idea to monitor your pets around plants and discourage them from chewing or nibbling on the foliage. If you notice any adverse reactions in your pet, such as vomiting or diarrhea, consult a veterinarian immediately.

Pro Tip

o prevent the buildup of mineral salts in the soil, which can harm your Parlour Palm, periodically flush the soil with distilled or filtered water. Simply water the plant thoroughly until water drains freely from the bottom of the pot, allowing any accumulated salts to be washed away.

Your Complete Guide to Pot Sizes: What Size Should You Choose?

When selecting a pot for your plant, it's important to find the right size. But with all the different options out there, how do you know which one is best? We're here to help!

MyGreenscape's pot sizes chart is a great resource for finding your perfect fit. Our easy-to-read chart takes out all the guesswork and helps you quickly choose the right size for your plant.

Smaller pots are best for seedlings or small plants just starting out. These tend to be shallow but wide, allowing enough room for the roots of the young plant but not too much where they get overcrowded. Medium-sized pots are ideal when your plant has grown from its infancy and is ready for more space. These are deeper and wider than small pots, so that it can accommodate larger root systems - making sure your plant gets enough nourishment while still giving it breathing room. Large pots are top choice if you have an established plant in need of lots of space - think trees and large shrubs! The spacious depth and width allow plenty of room for deep root systems without struggling for air or light.

No matter what size you choose, MyGreenscape has got you covered, with our pot sizes chart guaranteeing you find the perfect fit every time!
