The Parlour Palm is one of the most popular plants on the market. They have been a favourite since Victorian times, hence the common name. The parlour was considered the finest room in the house, reserved only to host the most important guests. Having one of these plants in your parlour was a way of proving your wealth and position in society.

These elegant bright green plants have pinnate leaves, meaning they feather out from multiple arching, slim stems.

Plant Care Tips: Parlour Palm

  • Place it in a bright area with filtered sunlight away from windows to avoid cold. 
  • Let the soil dry out between waterings. Do not overwater as these plants can be sensitive to root rot. 
  • They come from a humid environment. You can recreate this at home by misting them regularly!
  • They are light feeders and will only need fertilising once or twice during the growing season. Do not feed it in the colder months. 
  • Repotting may only be needed once every couple of years but be careful as the plant has a weak root system.
