How to Care for Parlor Palm
Before you buy a Parlor Palm Plant, make sure to read about the recommmended care instructions to keep this plant healthy and thriving.
What is the best light for Parlor Palm Plants?
Parlor Palm Plants will tolerate fluorescent light, but prefer bright light from a windowsill for several hours. Eastern or western facing windows generally provide enough light for the Neanthe Bella Palm Plants to be happy.
What is the best soil for Neanthe Bella Palm Plants?
Parlor Palm Plants need a very well draining soil, and prefer to have dry conditions. Adding sand to potting mix or mixing sand with existing soil outdoors helps with drainage. Avoiding an area with clay soil if planting outdoors would contribute to better drainage. Mixing in sand and avoiding clay are both beneficial steps to avoiding root rot.
How do I water Neanthe Bella Palm Plants?
Parlor Palm Plants need to dry out between watering, and they are prone to root rot and death. If you're unsure about whether or not to water, do not water. The soil should be almost completely dry before watering again in containers. Outdoors, Neanthe Bella Palm Plants should be located in an area that drains very well, as they will not tolerate sitting in water for extended periods. Sandy soil or mixing sand with the potting mix to transplant is generally a good idea to encourage drainage.
How do I fertilize Parlor Palm Plants?
Any all purpose, fertilizer will work for Parlor Palm Plants. Indoor houseplant fertilizers fall into two groups: water soluble, liquid quick release, and granular, slow release fertilizers. Jack's Classic Indoor plant food works well as a powder, quick release fertilizer that is mixed with water to quickly provide nutrients to a plant that has been in a container for an extended time. Osmocote Indoor/Outdoor is an option as a granular, slow release fertilizer that can be applied while potting and planting. Any type of fertilizer offers nutrients that help plants with the transition to a new environment. All of these fertilizers may be used when planting Neanthe Bella Palms indoors or outdoors. Keep in mind that Neanthe Bella Palms tend to grow very slowly, even if they are fed regularly.
