    Hi all,
    I am new to the forum and need assistance in identifying this plant. It was given to me in a dish garden and I'm not sure if it is a fern, palm or what? Where can I find info on it and instructions for care? Thanks for any help.

    Thanks so much. Where would be the best ink to find care instructions for this palm?

    I don't know about the best place but there should be no shortage of information if you google for it.

    I have one of these. It is definitely a parlour palm. Watch out though! I left it in full sun and it turned completely brown on me. It may not have been the sun, but its doing great in the shade, also, dont let the soil dry out completely. They will definitely show it if you do.
