Plant Story

Neanthe Bella Palm, commonly known as a Parlor Palm, is tropical, slow growing plant native to the rainforests of Southern Mexico and Guatemala and is one of the most sought-after indoor palms due to its size and easy maintenance. Parlor Palms have bright green fan-shaped leaves and has been used as a decorative plant since Victorian times found growing in home parlors hence its name.


Parlor palms grow best in moderate light, but can tolerate low-light rooms as well.


Water evenly when the top one to two inches of soil are dry. Depending on the size of your planter, they usually like to be watered every seven to 10 days.


Anything above 50 degrees Fahrenheit is comfortable for a parlor palm.


Fertilize every three to four weeks from spring through fall.
