When I moved into my first apartment, my best friend gave me a gorgeous Cat Palm tree, in the prettiest little pot. It’s been more than twenty years since I first lived in that tiny apartment and that little Cat Palm in the blue pot is still holding on strong. I loved the tropical feel it gave my home then and I still love that same feel it gives me now! If you are dying to bring the beach inside, try one of these easy to grow indoor palm trees.
Native to Southeastern Mexico, this plant loves it humid, damp, but not too sunny. It’s best to keep your Cat Palm in areas of bright but indirect sunlight. Once, I moved my Cat Palm into the bright sun only to discover that it’s leaves got completely scorched! Once mature, your plant can grow to reach 4-6 feet tall. It loves hearty drinks of water, so water it often!
However, this plant can be tricky for some people to grow especially if their home doesn’t get enough lighting. Luckily, there are many other types of indoor palm trees to choose from!
