Default lipstick palm

Should I get this palm tree for inside my house? I love the lipstick palm tree, it is one of my favorites... Good Idea? or Bad Idea?

Default actually its probably the best idea...

since the lipstick is hard to grow, growing it indoors would be easiest. The lipstick is very finicky and needs constant humidity and correct lighting, both can be done by visiting Lowes or home depot at a relatively low cost. If i were you, pick up a special light bulb for growing plants indoors and also get a $20 humidifier that you can find at Walmart. These two products will significantly increase the Lipstick palm thriving and even producing seeds for extra growing.

p.s. make sure the humidifier is a warm humidifier, the most common are cold humidifiers but they also make warm ones, the picture below is a warm humidifier. Also, the light below is a grow light, its not the best but for under 20.00 its alright.

good luck! and let me know how it goes

Thumbs up lipstick palm indoors

Yes I think you should. They should just fine. Just dont let the temp drop below 60 in your house, which I doubt should happen but you never know, I had a freind that would keep temperature at 60. I dont know how he did it or lived like that but thats just too cold. Maybe like 67 or high 60's but 60. Back to the lipstick palm tree, definitely get it. Its a rare beautiful palm.
