Cleans the Air Indoors & Thrives in Low Light
Why Lady Palm Trees?
The Lady Palm is an extremely popular plant to grow indoors because it easily adapts to areas with low light and even prefers to grow in shaded areas. Unlike many other varieties, the Lady Palm doesn’t need direct sunlight to thrive and will fill any space with unique tropical beauty.
Plus, the Lady Palm has multiple trunks that lead up to lush, green, fan-shaped fronds with long, slender leaflets. Their vivid green hue replaces dull areas of the home or office with a vibrant exotic look. It's no wonder why Lady Palms are commonly found decorating lobbies, elevating bare corners and framing entryways because they are an excellent choice for accent pieces that welcome visitors with warmth.
Even better? They couldn't be easier to keep. Lady Palms are drought tolerant and heat resistant, so they’ll grow just fine on their own without constant care. In fact, they work for you, cleaning the air and filtering out pollutants.

I appreciate your quick and perfect action for a little problem.
It was very easy to find the type of tree I wanted(Hong Kong Orchid) on their web site and to place the order. The tree was received in three days and was very carefully packaged so tree arrived in perfect condition. I am very happy with the transaction and would have no problem recommending them to my family and friends
We are so happy that you had such a great experience with your order! We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review!
From the ordering process and the care taken in shipping this was a great purchase, Oh yes - the plant is beautiful.
Palm arrived severely damaged because shipping box was not packed properly; so many fronds were broken that the palm will never regain its appropriate shape.I have asked for a replacement. Fast-Growing-Trees has said it would ship a replacement out but as yet (Friday Aug 10) none has arrived.I think the palm was well-grown but careless shipping ruined it.The Wisteria that was packed in the same box also had severe damage but it is a resilient plant and will recover.The Shipping Department is to blame here.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a location with bright but indirect light (low light areas work well as long as the Lady Palm gets some daily sun). Then, select a container that's about twice the size of your plant's shipped container, use organic soil mix, and place your Lady Palm.
2. Watering: Stick your finger into the potting soil down to a depth of 2 inches and feel around for any moisture. If the soil is drying out, go ahead and water until you see it escaping the drainage holes and then stop. If there is still moisture present, leave it be until it dries a bit more.
3. Fertilizing: You can apply palm fertilizers that contain specific nutrients best suited for palms. If you prefer, you can also use a balanced fertilizer, such as an 8-8-8 formula, for quicker growth in spring and summer.
4. Pruning: Palms do not need much pruning, except to remove damaged fronds. Always remove any damaged fronds by pruning them off with a sharp pair of sterilized pruners.
