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.
Keep the soil evenly moist, not soggy, in spring and summer. Water the soil thoroughly and wait for the water to drain through, then empty any excess water sitting in the saucer. Reduce watering in the cooler months by allowing the top 3-5cm of soil to dry out before watering again.
Tip: the top of the soil may look dry but it can be wet beneath, so before watering your plant, dip your finger into the soil to feel the level of moisture. If it feels soggy, wait for another day or two.
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.
