|There are so many different types of palms, it's hard to give you an absolute answer. If you're looking for a slow growing indoor palm, you might consider Sago Palm. Sago Palm(Cycas Revoluta)is a long-lived exotic palm that tolerates neglect but thrives with attention. Adapts to indirect light or full sun and has a wide temperature range from 15 to 120 degrees F. A slow growth rate allows indoor specimens to remain in the same container indefinitely. Treat as a cactus -- water when almost dry and seldom fertilize. Eight year old plants are usually only 14" tall.
