Most people don’t realize that many palms grow very well indoors. 
 
In order to perform well inside a home, a palm has to fit a set of requirements:
1) Able to grow in low light
2) Does not mind being kept in a small container
3) Tolerates low humidity
4) Leaves are fairly resistant to airborne bacteria
 
The plant will need:
1) Ambient light (from a window or skylight)
2) Airflow (from a ceiling fan or open window)
3) Fresh water (by leeching the soil)
