The Lady Palm is a great all-rounder palm. Its elegant appearance, air-purifying qualities, low-light and dry air tolerance makes an excellent choice for a garden, home or office space.
Here’s how to care for your Lady Palm.
While tolerant of low light, The Lady Palm will do well in a part-shade outdoors or medium to bright indirect light indoors. If you’re placing your Lady Palm outside, be mindful they can burn in the harsh sun.
Before watering your plant, do a moisture check by dipping your finger into the soil. If the soil feels dry, then it’s time to water. Remove any excess water from the saucer as sitting in it may cause root rot and ruin your plant. Allow the top 3-5cm of soil to dry out before watering again. Reduce watering in the cooler months.
Temperature & Humidity
The Lady Palm will tolerate cool to warm temperatures and average humidity. If the air is dry, especially in an air-conditioned environment, mist your plant regularly to increase humidity.
Fertilise your Lady Palm once or twice with a liquid fertiliser during the growing season.
Remove any dead or yellowing leaves.
