Plant Care & Advice

Parlour Palms do best in a partially shaded spot out of direct sunlight. They can be positioned on north or east-facing windowsills when small, but are best positioned slightly away from the window in west or south-facing rooms. When they're happy, they produce plenty of new leaves and will need repotting every few years into a slightly larger pot, using multipurpose or houseplant compost.

Water them regularly - poke your finger into the compost and if it feels dry give it some water, allowing the excess water to drain out of the bottom of the pot. During winter, it will need only occasional watering - much less than when in growth during the spring and summer months. Mist the leaves regularly, especially in rooms where humidity is low.

For best results, feed regularly using a houseplant fertiliser between April and September. Before feeding, ensure the compost is already slightly moist with water otherwise the feed could burn the roots.

The only pruning required is the occasional removal of dead leaves, which should be snipped off at the base with a sharp pair of secateurs.
