Learn how to care for the Majesty Palm! 

The Majesty Palm is a robust, tropical palm with graceful, feathery fronds that originates from Madagascar. This palm is typically found along river banks and likely got its name due to its majestic quality. Its leaves tend to grow from the trunk in an erect fashion before arching at the ends forming a large crown. While relatively new to the world of houseplants, with the right care, this palm is a great addition to the home.
