Types of Best Indoor Palm Plants to Grow Easily:

Chinese Fan Palm:

The Chinese fan palm or also known as Livistona Chinensis is one of the most beautiful plants that you can keep indoors. Chinese fan palms have star-shaped leaves that you will not find in any other variety of palm plants. These leaves look beautiful and grab the attention of everyone that will come to your house.

These plants are usually dwarf but can grow up to 15 feet in proper conditions. This plant does not require any special care to grow properly, but still, there are some things that you need to take care of. The Chinese fan palm can go days without water, you only need to water the plant if the topsoil becomes dry. Bright light or even near a window will act as a great source of natural light which will help your plant to grow properly. You do not have to over-fertilize the plant, in springs just adding an adequate amount of slow-releasing fertilizer will do the trick.

Areca Palm:

Areca palm also known as Dysis lutescens is native to Madagascar. Areca Palm is one of the finest choices of indoor plants, which goes by different names like bamboo palm, golden cane palm, and many more. Many people are fond of the areca palm because of its soft fronds and tolerance to low levels of light.

The Areca Palm can easily be grown indoors and usually loves to be watered properly. The plant will grow its most in moist soil with a moderate amount of fertilizers added monthly. The plant can grow in both shade and sunlight but will look more beautiful when direct sunlight hits it.

The Ponytail Palm:

The ponytail palm or also known as Beaucarnea recurvata is also one of the best choices of plants for indoor gardens. The plant survives in low light and can grow up to 5 feet in such conditions. If kept outside the plant can reach a height of about 20 feet or more.

You can easily grow this plant inside a pot like zucchini, the plant has a strong and rigid stem but has a beautiful spread of leaves. The trunk of the plant also works as a water reservoir for the plant, as it can easily survive in drought conditions or for people like me who usually forget to water their plant according to the schedule.

Parlor Palm:

Chamaedorea Elegans or parlor palm is one of the easiest to grow plants and is best suitable for beginners. This plant will not require any special care and the only extra work you will need to do is to remove the dead branches off the plant by cutting them.

The plant grows great in indoor lighting and prefers mostly moderate levels of moist soil. When kept indoors the plant can easily achieve a height between 4 to 6 feet. This is a slow-growing plant and grows properly in low light and humidity. Sometimes, it prefers a little bit of high humidity which can easily be achieved by spraying the water on the plant.

Kentia Palm:

Howea forsteriana is the scientific name of kentia palm. This plant easily resembles one more plant which comes from the palm family, known as Sentry Palm. The only difference between both the plants is that the leaves of kentia palms do not drop as much as compared to that of sentry’s palm.

The plant can easily grow in low shady lights and does not require a significant amount of light to grow completely. You can easily water the plant when you feel the soil is a little bit dry. As said earlier you can also use slow-releasing fertilizers for this plant, as they will help nourish the plant when it is actively growing.

Sago Palm:

Sago’s palm is the name known commonly for Cycas revoluta. If this is not one of the best choices for the palm plants that you want to grow, then you may need to replan it for your indoor garden. Sago palms curved and pinnate leaves are one of the best-looking things you will ever have indoors. The plant can easily grow in little shades, but you need to keep in mind that it is a slow-growing plant.

The trunk of the plant resembles a pineapple with a wide spread of needle-like leaves on the top. You only need to water the sago palm when the soil feels a little bit dry and keep it near a window so it can receive proper sunlight.

Bamboo Palm:

Bamboo palm is also known as Chamaedorea seifrizii. It gets its name from the looks itself, as this plant grows in clusters of small bamboo-like trunks with a beautiful spread of leaves all over the place.

The bamboo palms are a great choice indoors, as they tolerate low light and low humidity quite well and some more plants that thrive on low light are Parlor palm, Devil’s Ivy, Kentia palm, Striped Dracaena etc. Also, it is a slow-growing plant that can reach up to 4 to 12 feet in height and 3 to 4 feet in width. The beautiful leaf spread of the plant is great for decorating any indoor items, like the area near the TV or your room.

European Fan Palm:

European fan palm also known as Chamaerops humilis is one of the best choices for indoor gardens as this is quite a hardy palm plant and is most popular with beginners. The plant is suitable indoors as the plant can easily tolerate temperatures of about 5 degrees Fahrenheit.

Majestic Palm:

Ravenea rivularis is the botanical name for the majestic plant. Majestic palm is a strong plant that doesn’t require any special maintenance. These plants can easily survive in indirect light as exposure to direct light can damage the leaves of the plant. Watering the plant one or two times a week is sufficient and you can also let the soil become a little bit dry before watering again.

Lady Palm:

Lady’s palm is another name for Rhapis excelsa. The plant has a great spread of beautiful dark shiny leaves, which may require a little bit of cutting after some time.
