10 Indoor Palm Trees to Turn Your Home Into a Tropical Paradise

Create a tropical escape in your own home when you grow indoor palm trees. These bold and showy plants are great statement pieces, whether you’re looking to add some greenery to your living room, bedroom, kitchen, or office. Overall, they’re fairly low maintenance—select a variety you love that fits your growing conditions, and you’ll have a thriving houseplant for years to come.

Here are several indoor palm trees to consider for your space.

1. Kentia Palm (Howea forsteriana)

Native to the South Pacific, this houseplant will give you that big, classic palm tree look. While it is a slow grower, you should still plant it in a large pot—over the years, it can reach more than 12 feet indoors.

Houseplant lovers favor the Kentia palm because it can tolerate low light and doesn’t require a lot of maintenance. You can move it outdoors in the summer, but make sure to avoid direct sunlight. A nice shaded patio or balcony would be perfect.

2. Sago Palm (Cycas revoluta)

Although the common name is "palm," this tree is actually in the cycads family, which makes it a conifer. Sago palms are very slow growers; don’t worry if your tree doesn’t seem any bigger from one year to the next. If you have them long enough, they will bloom. However, this can take 10 years or more, so put it in a large pot and keep it going for the long haul.

3. Chinese Fan Palm (Livistona chinensis)

Also known as fountain palm, this plant is native to Taiwan, Southern Japan, and China. The large fans on the plant (called fronds) can reach 2-3 feet wide growing indoors, so it can take a lot of space once it matures. For best results, let this palm dry out between waterings. Once you get it going, it can easily live for more than 30 years.

4. Bamboo Palm (Chamaedorea seifrizii)

This is a popular office plant because it can thrive without a lot of extra care or attention. It’s very similar to the parlor palm, though the botanical name is slightly different. You want to under-water rather than overwater this palm. Also make sure to keep it away from drafts or quick temperature changes. Other than that, it can make a great houseplant for years.

5. Majestic Palm (Ravenea rivularis)

The majestic palm tree likes moisture and humidity, so a kitchen or a bathroom might be perfect for it. Don’t overwater this tree—once or twice a week should be enough. It’s another slow grower that can give life to an indoor space for years.

6. Parlor Palm (Chamaedorea elegans)

The parlor palm has beautiful, deep green foliage that can reach a few feet high while growing indoors. Many gardeners think of it as a tabletop palm, making it popular for even small spaces. It’s native to the rainforests of Guatemala and Southern Mexico. Keep the soil slightly dry, and definitely don’t expose it to cold or drafty conditions.

7. Yucca Palm (Yucca elephantipes)

Yucca palms are native to arid areas, so they can tolerate dry conditions as well as owners who may forget to water from time to time. In fact, they really don’t do well with waterlogged soil, so water deeply but infrequently for best results.

8. Ponytail Palm (Beaucarnea recurvata)

Native to eastern Mexico, the ponytail palm naturally goes several months without water, so keep this in mind when establishing a houseplant watering routine in your house. Too much can definitely impact your success with this one—less is more will go a long way.

With its bold trunk and fun, slightly wild ponytail top, the ponytail palm quickly becoming one of the most popular houseplants in the country. It makes a great housewarming gift, too.
