The Majesty Palm is a strong tropical palm from Madagascar that has beautiful leaves that look like feathers. This palm is often found near rivers, and its name comes from how beautiful it looks.
Its leaves grow straight up from the stem and make a big crown at the end. Even though this palm is new to the world of houseplants, it is a great addition to any home if it is cared for properly.
Looking for a palm that doesn’t need as much care? Try the Parlor Palm instead, which is just as pretty but easier to care for.
On the right, you might see the Bird’s Nest Fern, which is another beautiful tropical plant. Here is where you can buy the Parlor Palm, or you can keep reading to find out how to take care of one.
It does best with strong indirect light, but it can also grow in mild indirect light.
Water the soil every one to two weeks, letting it dry out in the middle. Water evaporates more frequently when it is bright and less frequently when it is dark.Always check how wet the soil is before you water.
From normal to high, humidity can be found. Installing a fine-mist mister or humidifier could make the air inside more humid.
The temperature in your home should be between 65°F and 75°F, or up to 85°F if it’s warmer. If you’re comfortable, the Majesty Palm is a nice place to stay.
It is best to use a potting mix that has enough drainage. Add things like perlite and/or lava rocks as needed to help the soil breathe.
If you take care of your Majesty Palm, it can grow to be between 15 and 20 feet tall.
