6 tips for keeping Parlor palm leaves verdant

Parror palm is a small plant, the highest variety is only about one meter. It is good for potting and cutting flowers. How to maintain it?

1. Illumination

Parror palm prefers semi shady place, and the best way is to maintain astigmatism. If it is illuminated by strong light, the leaf color will be withered and yellow, but if it is placed in the place with insufficient light for a long time, the plant will become thin and long.

2. Temperature

The suitable temperature for growth is 18-24 ℃ and dormancy at 13 ℃. It’s better not to lower than 10 ℃ in winter.

3. Watering

Parlor palm is fond of water. It is necessary to keep the soil moist during the growth period and wait until two thirds of the pot soil is dry during the dormancy period. In addition, parror palm likes high air humidity. If it is too dry, the tip of the leaf will turn brown. During the drying period, such as autumn, it is necessary to spray water on the leaf surface to improve the air humidity.

4. Fertilization

Compound fertilizer can be applied to the plant once a month during the growth period. Diluted liquid nitrogen fertilizer was applied every half a month. In autumn, fertilization should be reduced or stopped.


Good drainage, loose and fertile loam is the best. It can be made of sapropelic soil, peat soil with a quarter of silt or perlite and a small amount of base fertilizer, or 70% of vegetable soil mixed with 30% of rotten leaf soil.

6. Precautions for parlor palm maintenance

Be careful not to cause scorching due to excessive illumination. Parlor palm prefers shade environment, so it should be placed in the North window, the east window or other places with bright scattered light, so it is suitable for growing temperature. To keep the air humidity around, acid soil should not be used as pot soil, and a small amount of clay should be added. Changing Pot1 should be done every 3 years. At the seedling stage, it is enough to apply 3-4 times of thin liquid fertilizer in spring.
