Lady Palm



She's a lady, oh, whoa, whoa, she's a lady. I’m a cute little palm with fronds that look like fans. I can be slow grower but being one of the easiest palms to grow indoors, I’m definitely a keeper! Just water me regularly in summer and not so much in winter - I can even tolerate dry soil for short periods.

Care mode

Generally easy to grow and care for but avoid excessive bright light as leaves will bleach. Dry air and draughts will cause leaf tips to brown. During cooler winter months, reduce watering. Fertilise in warmer months.

Feeding your indoor plants

To get the best out of your indoor plants, you will need to feed them some food. The Good Plant Co Indoor Plant Food will provide all the nutrients they need to grow more leaves and help them stay strong. When the plant is actively growing during the warmer months, it needs a bit more food and water. During the slow growing season (cooler winter months) your plant doesn’t eat or drink as much (no extra winter layer of fat for these babies). Sometimes it’s ok to be a helicopter parent – respond to your plant’s needs. To keep the dust off your beautiful indoor plant leaves use The Good Plant Co Leaf Shine. Moral of the story, if it is growing new leaves then it will need more water and food!

We take great care in growing, packaging, and shipping your new plants so they’re ready to thrive in your home. This includes keeping them safe while they travel from our wholesale nursery to your doorstep.
