CARE LEVEL: Casual Plant Enthusiast
Lady palms have average water needs and are somewhat tolerant of drought once they’re established. In the spring and summer, when most of the palm’s active growth is taking place, water whenever the top inch of soil feels dry. In the fall and winter, reduce watering to whenever the top 2 inches of soil feel dry. Besides their compact size and light requirements, another factor that makes lady palms ideal for growing indoors is that they thrive in typical room temperatures between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. In the colder months, be sure your palm remains in temperatures above 55 degrees Fahrenheit, as anything colder can damage the plant. Protect your plant from cold drafts, as well as from blowing hot air (such as air from a heating vent) that can dry it out.
