Houseplant Humidity Guide

Light Requirements

Bright, indirect light

Butterfly Palms thrive in bright, indirect light to dappled sun. Prolonged exposure to bright direct sunlight may burn and scorch their leaves.

Watering Schedule

Weekly watering

Your Butterfly Palm enjoys weekly waterings. Allow her soil to dry out between waterings, especially during the winter - when you might only need to water your plant fortnightly.


High humidity

Butterfly Palms enjoy a humid environment, which is why we recommend frequent misting of their leaves.

Sad Plant Signs

Browning tips, browning, yellowing leaves

Browning tips & crisping leaves - cold draughts or dry atmosphere. Young leaves turning brown: overwatering. Yellowing leaves: under-watering. Prune off decaying leaves to stimulate new growth.

Finding the perfect plant parent

With tall, arching fronds and narrow leaflets, the Butterfly Palm will make an elegant addition to any interior by framing furniture and creating accents. On top of this, the Butterfly Palm will purify the air we breathe and alleviate the damage caused by central heating by releasing humidity into the air.

Style tip


Place plants that love bright, indirect light, in front of an empty surface where their leaves will cast interesting shadows.
