This upright, fronded palm will add some tropical vibes to your space (no travel required). Marino tells us that the Parlor Palm has been cultivated since the Victorian era. Both then and now, it’s prized for its resilience to indoor conditions. Featuring several thin, compact stalks and dark green fronds, this beachy babe is suitable for new plant parents, thanks to its low-effort care requirements.
Plant Care Tips: “Unlike the palm trees you see at the beach, this palm is not suited for intense, direct sun. Instead, the Parlor Palm thrives in medium to bright indirect light. It can also tolerate low and indirect light,” says Marino, who recommends watering this plant every one to two weeks, allowing the soil to dry in between waterings. “Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light. Oh, and this plant can benefit from extra humidity,” she notes, so consider homing it in your bathroom if it gets adequate light or investing in a humidifier.
