Indoor Palm Tip: Buying an Indoor Palm
When buying a indoor palm there are few things to consider. If you are going to a store to buy the indoor palm ask someone working there which variety works best indoors. I know it sounds simple but sometimes, particularly at large retail stores, things get moved around and mislabeled or separated from their original tag, so ask someone. Because we are dedicated to indoor palms, that is all we'll be showing you. We do not deal with palms that a meant for the outside.
Now are you looking to buy seeds or are you looking to buy a already grown indoor palm? This site carries many varieties of seeds. One reason we like seeds is that you can grow them fresh, it's kind of fun to raise the palms from palm seedlings and it insures they were properly cared for from the beginning of their life.
Now if you are buying an indoor palm from a store there are a few things to look for, the first is to make sure there are not a lot of dead fronds on the bottom. This is one indication the indoor palm has not been looked after. Next tip on buying an indoor palm is to avoid palms that are stretched or forced to grow really tall, really quickly. Some retailers, force grow palms so when customers see them, they think "get the big one it must be healthy," but in fact it is quite the opposite. So the tip is, sometimes buying smaller more compact indoor palms are sometimes healthier.
Our next tip for buying Indoor Palms: Check the leaves! Looking at the actual leaves can tell you if the indoor palm has bugs or not. There are two bugs in particular to look out for, that can spread from plant to plant quickly at a large box store. The first is the mealy bug and that would look like tiny cotton balls and the second is the spider mite and that would give a speckled look.
Don't let any of these items scare you from buying indoor palms. First they are returnable and the benefits far outweigh any inconvenience.
