How to Care For a Parlor Palm:
Characteristics and Care: This smaller version of a typical palm tree prefers a tropical climate, and can easily reach heights of ten feet tall or even more!
The branching flower stems give way to green, fan-shaped leaves. Due to the fact that it tends to grow slowly, it’s an excellent choice for an indoor plant, as it can easily adapt to nearly any area where it’s kept. In fact, it can take nearly a decade for this plant to reach even three feet in height.
These plants prefer to grow in conditions with high humidity, and greatly benefit from a regular watering routine.
Benefits: Not only does the Parlor Palm help with introducing oxygen into the areas where it’s kept, it also aids in purifying the air from toxins and allergens.
Spiritual Properties: The Parlor Palm is not only incredibly resilient; it also takes a span of time to come into its own.
Likewise, this plant helps instill within us a sense of determination, and the willingness to work for what we need and want over time, confident that the results we seek are occurring in the background.
Warnings: This plant is largely non-toxic, so you don’t have to worry about keeping it away from small children or pets.
