Your Majesty palm will want lots of bright light (no direct sunshine), lots of water and periodic feeding with a water soluable houseplant fertilizer such as Miracle Gro, Peter's, etc. Water completely when the top half inch of soil dries out, then allow the top half inch of potting soil to dry out between waterings. Feed every 3-4 weeks with a half strength dilution of fertilizer. Dracaena plants do well in low to bright light. Again, allow the top of the soil to dry out between waterings and feed every 3-4 weeks with a half strength dilution of fertilizer. Enjoy your new houseplants!
