However, that’s not all palm trees are for. Palm trees can be incorporated into many different settings bringing the tropical vibe to the most mundane settings. Put it in your indoor gardens, create a rustic and tropical fusion, fill empty spaces and more.
Here are 8 palm trees for a variety of indoor landscapes.
Neanthe Bella Palm for packed settings
The plant is perfect for the congested spaces in your commercial property. It can grow only up to three to four feet, hence, space is not a concern. Moreover, it takes the plant several years to reach that height.
You can place it in the seating area of your property as furniture takes up most of the space.
The indoor plant should not be kept in direct sunlight or the leaves will start to wither. Place it in partial shade where it gets indirect sunlight.
You need to water the plant 2 or 3 times a week.
Kentia palm for your indoor garden
Thinking of an indoor garden? Kentia palm is your pick. The plant is resilient and can survive a variety of conditions. You can place it in an indoor garden in the lobby under a transparent roof.
This idea is perfect for properties located in colder regions as it allows you to receive some sunshine during the day.
The palm tree cannot survive direct sunlight. So, place it towards the edge of the indoor garden, if you have a skylight or a transparent roof.
The soil should be moist to ensure proper growth.
Bamboo palm plant for a complex look
Add some personality to a space with the bamboo palm plant. It is appealing to the eye and practical.
You can add a ladder to your cafe or restaurant for a rustic look. The twist is that you use the steps of the ladder to stack small potted plants. You can place the bamboo palm around the ladder to create a complex fusion of different styles and heights. You get tall and short plants along with the fusion of rustic and tropical.
Taking care of the plant is very easy. Water the plant when the soil feels dry. The soil should be evenly moist. Don’t overwater and leave the plant sitting in water. This can cause root rot.
Rhapis Palm to fill the space
Corners of the rooms are often the hardest to decorate. Any item you place is at the risk of being overseen. Which brings us to the obvious question, is the time and money even worth it?
It is with the rhapis palm. Don’t leave the space unused, rather plant the palm tree to create a grand look. It can grow up to 6ft. tall and 4ft wide, filling empty spaces efficiently.
Place the plant in a spot where it can receive indirect sunlight. These plants also don’t run the risk of any serious pests or diseases.

These plants complement each other’s heights and textures creating a dual look of uniformity and variety.

Ivies cascade down from high walls, ceiling planters and more. You can add to this look by having this plam on the surface.
