Bring a Touch of the Tropics to Your Home

What comes into your mind when you see a palm tree? Holidays? Warmth? Relaxation? Well who couldn’t use a little more of that in their home! Palm trees bring a fresh, bold look, with minimal fuss on your part. The plants in this collection are super easy to care for, so they’re a great pick for plant newbies and seasoned plant owners alike. If you are just starting your own plant collection, these hardy palms will ease you into the joys of plant care. (Trust us, you’ll become an expert quicker than you’d think!)

Many of these plants come in different sizes, so you can choose what works best for your room, or get a whole family of plants - the Kentia Palm being a prime example. Larger palms make impressive statement plants, while smaller palms can soften up your desk. Pop a large palm in the corner of your living room to bring a splash of vibrancy, or group them with some other plants of different shapes and colours to create a bit of drama.

Bright Light but Out of Direct Sunlight

All plants need light to live, but most of them actually prefer sunshine in moderation. This certainly applies to the palms in this edit. As you get to know your plants better, you’ll begin to recognize when they’re getting too much or too little light. By paying attention to your plants, you'll begin to learn what they need. All of this happens (reasonably) intuitively, making it a gratifying and very enjoyable pastime.

Plants from tropical regions are often great natural humidifiers for your home. One of those is the Areca Palm. The stems become a fountain of arched green leaves, radiating vitality. This green wonder also improves air quality by removing toxins and increasing humidity levels. It comes in various sizes, so there are many ways it can complement your interior.

Another beauty that likes spaces with lots of light is this Fishtail Palm! Although it might not have the classical palm look, be assured that this plant will bring a vibrant jungle look to any room. Its leaves are ridged and fin-shaped, hence the common name Fishtail Palm.

Shade Tolerant Plants

Although you might associate palms with sun and beaches, some variants don’t mind low light. One of our all-time favorites is the Emerald Palm because it can grow in pretty much any condition. Simply adapt the watering frequency depending on how much light it’s getting, and you’ll have one happy chap!

As some of these plants originate from tropical regions, they will love a more humid environment. With kitchens and bathrooms getting steamy occasionally, palms will feel right at home. The Sago Palm is one of those, whilst tolerating the shade that most of our bathrooms would have. The feathery fronds grow from the trunk, which doesn’t branch out. It’s one of the taller plants in this collection but will only grow slowly due to its age.

Palms for Your Garden

Come spring and summer, you may be able to bring your palm outside, depending on the variety. If you’re lucky enough to have a garden or balcony in your home, consider adding a touch of island paradise. Most of the palms in this edit will appreciate the light and warmth, but too much direct sun can scorch their leaves.

Bring the tropics onto your terrace or balcony with a palm tree. Surround your outdoor sitting area with greenery to create a bit of holiday feels in your own home: perfect for reading a book in the sun or inviting friends round for a BBQ. Most of the palms in this edit are hardy and durable enough to work in this environment. Just remember to keep an eye on them, keep them partially covered, and take them back inside in autumn.

Benefits of Having Plants for Body and Mind

Surrounding yourself with greenery, whether that’s going for a walk or having your own green oasis at home, can benefit you in many ways. Plants can boost your mental wellbeing, and your physical health too! Each variant has its own characteristics, which influences how it will benefit you.

Air Purifier

As plants ‘breathe’ through their foliage, they filter toxins from the air, keeping them out of your airways. Our rule of thumb: the more surface area a plant has, the better it will absorb nasties. One of the best purifying plants out there is the Kentia Palm. It’s a no-fuss plant. Keep it in your living room or a dimly lit bathroom. It’s a beautiful green companion to have!

Another A+ student at air purifying is the Dragon Tree ‘Magenta’. This super durable plant has stunning leaves in shades of green to deep purple. Its compact size makes it a great feature for your desk - a simple way to improve the air quality of your office!

A Mutually Beneficial Relationship

All of the plants in this edit have a lush green colour. Psychologists found that this colour triggers an evolutionary response that’s energising. In our collective subconscious, an association with health and vitality is deeply embedded. Having houseplants can help you create this positive atmosphere, making it a sanctuary to recharge your batteries and be ready for what’s next!

To help your plants flourish, you’ll need to give them a bit of your attention. Taking the time to report your plants, water them, or even touch their foliage will help you develop a nurturing relationship with nature. This will not just be beneficial for them, though – you’ll benefit too! Those who are already plant-obsessed will know that there is hardly anything more satisfying than seeing your plants grow and flourish!
