Majesty Palm, aka Ravenea Rivularis, is an easy-care tropical palm with graceful, feathery fronds that add a classic look to indoor and outdoor spaces. Native to Madagascar, these palms are typically found along river banks and likely got their name due to their majestic quality. They are also slow-growing, but are often found growing in outdoor planters during the warmer months.
They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.
They will do well in medium light but will grow faster with brighter light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.
They need to be watered when the top half of the soil is dry to the touch. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you water again.
They will do well in average humidity environments but will appreciate a little bit of humidity if provided, give them a mist daily or get a humidifier.
The brown fronds do not necessarily indicate a problem, if it is being watered properly. They can be removed over time, if they turn brown or yellow, which allows for fresh space and energy to go towards new leaf growth. Like other palm trees, the fronds on your Majesty Palm will eventually die over time. Spider mite loves all palms, give your palm a shower every once a while or when you see them will keep them away.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
