Hello!

I decided now would be a good time to try growing some palms indoors, since I guess I will have a lot of time to take good care of them!

As I generally do with houseplants, I started with more of a challenge. If it doesn't work, well, it doesn't work. One is chambeyronia macrocarpa, and the other is livistona muelleri. There's a smidge of browning on the tips of the leaves, but they've been through a lot, being shipped from downstate and all. Maybe they just need some time to acclimatize?

Any tips for getting these off on the right foot are much appreciated!

You need to plant palm tree in bigger pot. 8 inches pot will work that helps for air circulation as they grow big.

Also,
palm trees need well-draining soil that is rich in nutrients. The more coarse the soil, the better it drains. A soil that is a combination of 20 percent sand, 40 percent rich topsoil and 40 percent organic materials, including mulch, would be a good mix.
