Parlor palm is one of those tropical plants that will blossom indoors. It is also a slow grower and therefore it is quite easy to find a permanent space for it.
Of all indoor palms, the parlor palm is certainly the slowest growing. Small seedlings are frequently sold as terrarium plants and may take years to outgrow their allotted space. A plant only three feet high can be decades old! The plant has a short, green trunk and dark green, slightly arching, fan-shaped leaves. It blooms readily indoors, but the branching flower stems have little decorative effect.
Brown leaf tips and spider mites are frequent problems and usually indicate a need for higher air humidity.
