Palm TREE HOUSEPLANTS
Bring a tropical look and texture into your home
HOW TO GROW PALM TREE HOUSEPLANTS
If you are looking to add a tropical look to your home, look no further than palm trees. With most palm trees they need a very bright place in your home, but try and avoid direct sun. They like to have moist soil so making sure the top inch of the soil is dry between waterings. Make sure the pot you house it has a drainage hole so the roots don’t sit in water. That will cause them to rot.
Palm tree houseplants like an area that is bright indirect light. They will not do well with direct sun and could burn their leaves.
Keep soil evenly moist in spring and summer. In winter, allow the top 1 in to dry out between waterings. Note: The Ponytail palm is a succulent so allow soil to dry completely between watering.
Palm tree houseplants like average room temperatures 65-75°F.
Palm tree houseplants like a moderate to high, around 50% relative humidity or higher. Brown leaf tips may indicate that indoor air is dry.
IS IT PET FRIENDLY?
Most palms are pet friendly with the exception of the Sago Palm. They may cause some discomfort and vomiting when eaten. Keep away from animals and children.
