Parlour Palm Care Guide
Light: Low light will be tolerated but like all houseplants deep shade or no light at all will not go down well (unless it’s only for short periods). Harsh direct sunshine will scorch the leaves in time.
Watering: Underwatering a Parlour Palm is better than overwatering. Water well then wait until the surface and inch or so below the soil surface has dried out, at which point water well again. They’re forgiving plants and will let you off if you forget to water them on occasion. Do make sure you limit the amount of water given when light or temperature levels are low because in those conditions plants don’t need as much water. Too much wetness around the roots for prolonged periods will encourage fungi and run the risk of root rot which could quickly kill your plant
Humidity: Red Spider Mite can be an issue if humidity is very low or there is a lot of dry air around the leaves, for example if placed near a working radiator. However, providing Spider Mites aren’t a problem in your home this is a palm that really doesn’t care too much about low or high humidity.
Feeding: Because there are often several plants in a single pot all fighting for the limited number of nutrients in the soil, you should look to feed on a semi regular basis. That said, these palms are still relatively small and don’t need masses of feed to do well. A general feed once every couple of months will be enough for mature plants. Younger plants will be happy with slightly more, so aim for once a month.
