Size:

SUN
Neanthe Bella Palms thrive in a variety of lighting conditions, but a room with medium or filtered bright light is best. They’ll do well a few feet away from east or south-facing windows. Do not keep your plant in direct sunlight. 
WATER
Keep soil slightly moist, with a brief period of drought between waterings. Water well once the top 2-3 inches of the soil are dry. Reduce frequency during fall and winter.
AIR
Mimic a tropical environment with temperatures between 65º-80º and a high moisture content. Provide a regular boost of humidity by:
  • Adding a humidifier nearby
  • Creating a pebble tray that lives underneath the pot
  • Placement in a bathroom or kitchen, if lighting is suitable
  • Misting the leaves 2-4x per week with non-tap water
PET FRIENDLY
The Neanthe Palm is safe for cats and dogs.
AESTHETIC
Native to tropical areas of Southern Mexico and Guatemala, the Neanthe is a species of small palm trees that grow under the canopy of the rainforest. Their thin stems grow up in clusters, with fine, feather-like, green leaves flaring out on each branch. Indoors, these can grow up to 4 feet tall, making them compact and versatile for any space. 
HEALTH BENEFITS
Active exposure to and care for plants has many proven wellbeing benefits, such as: 
  • Lower stress levels
  • Improved mood
  • Superior mental clarity and focus
Neanthe Palm are excellent air-purifiers, removing toxins like benzene and toluene from the air. Their humidifying capabilities will also help you sleep and breathe better. Keep their leaves free of dust for optimal photosynthesis, oxygen, and shine.
SPIRITUAL INTERPRETATIONS
In some cultures, palms are believed to represent good luck. They are a good symbol of safety, reunions, and peace of mind. In Feng Shui practices, placing a Neanthe Palm in the northwest or to the left of your entrance allows this intentional energy to flow through your space. 
Neanthe Palms make thoughtful gifts for someone moving to a new place and long-distance loved ones.

OUR RECS
We recommend a 4-inch or 7-inch ceramic planter with a drainage hole to provide ideal moisture balance for your Neanthe Palm. When repotting, keep it in a planter of the same size or no more than 2 inches larger.  
Ideal soil amendments include combining perlite with your standard potting mix.
