Indoors, this palm ((Ravenea rivularis) needs bright but indirect light. Unlike many palms, it needs evenly moist yet well drained soil, meaning always damp but not sopping wet/saturated. During winter, it needs extra humidity to stay healthy indoors. Provide a minimum temperature of about 65 degrees. Fertilize regularly with a water soluble fertilizer such as 10-10-10 plus micronutrients per the label directions.

If you are interested in growing palms as house plants, you might find the following care information and suggested types helpful. You may need to cut and paste the complete url into your browser to make it work correctly.

Good luck with your palm!
