The Parlour Palm is one of the most sought after indoor palms around today. The reasons for this couldn't be more straight forward - It thrives in our homes and workplaces where other species may struggle and it's also one of the cheapest palms you can buy.
Approximately 25cm High from base of plant.
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). Some sun will be helpful, but harsh direct sunshine will scorch the leaves in time.
The perfect spot for your Parlour Palm therefore should be bright and ideally with a little sun in early morning or late afternoon.
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.
To avoid this happening all you need to do is remember to make sure no water is being held in the drip tray or in the container surrounding the pot itself after you've watered it. If there is, simply pour it away.
