It would be the understatement of the century to say that majesty palm trees do not do well indoors. They require tons of water, fertilizer, and sunlight, and they seem to spontaneously generate spider mites. Moreover, their intolerance to long-term potting means that they won't last more than a couple of years even under the best of circumstances.
I knew all of this, and I bought one anyway. Why? Well, because I think palms are pretty, because I like babying houseplants...and because a 3 ft. specimen was only $11.99. Besides, I figured trying to keep it alive would be a challenge.
Well, after trimming off about ten fronds and squishing the life out of several hundred spider mites, I can't help wondering if I'm already losing the battle. (Though I've got four or five new fronds coming up, none have opened.) Hence the picture, while the plant is still (relatively speaking) in its prime. A picture'll last longer, anyway.
