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.
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.
