      myownworld, parlor palm is a really beautiful palm, go for it. But make sure, you place it under the shade of some taller trees. They like bright BUT indirect sunlight. And, I wonder if I will ever be able to sale this place out where I am currently living, I think I'll keep it because of my plants. Thanks for commenting MOW!
