The Issue of Size

Many of the most common palm trees grown inside, such as the Kentia palm, want to become trees. You can slow a palm down by keeping it slightly pot-bound—don’t repot every year, and it won’t grow as large as quickly. 

How to Grow Palm indoor

  • Few palms will thrive in colder temperatures, and some, like the coconut palm, can’t tolerate any cold at all. The colder hardy palms include the parlor and kentia palms, which partly explains why these are the most popular indoor palms. These palms prefer nights down to 50ºF.
  • Most palms are much more tolerant of shade than you might think. Again, the parlor and kentia palms prefer partial shade and will suffer in direct sun. Others, including the pygmy date and Washingtonia palm, can tolerate much more light.
  • Only repot when the palm is completely pot bound. Palms often have shallow root systems, and they don’t appreciate being disturbed. Also, infrequent repotting slows the growth rate of palms that might rapidly outgrow your room.
