In spring and summer, she gets thirsty so check her weekly and water her whenever the top inch of soil feels dry.
She loves moderate to bright light, but direct sun is a bit much. In a very sunny room, place her away from the window.
Moisture in the air will help keep her leaves green and fresh. This is easily done by misting her about once a week.
She’s naturally a slow grower but if you want to give her a boost in spring and summer, give her a feed about once a month.

About Parlour palms
In the wild, you’ll find this plant growing primarily in Mexico and Guatemala, but it’s been beloved as an indoor plant around the world since Victorian times. For Victorians, the parlour was the best room in the house, where you would receive your fanciest visitors and display your fanciest possessions. This exotic palm in your parlour would suggest you were worldly and sophisticated, hence the name Parlour palm.
We’re all a bit less formal these days, but a Parlour palm still brings simple elegance to any room and it’s really easy to care for. They tolerate low light and infrequent watering, but as with any plant, you’ll get better results if you treat them well.
