Create your own tropical paradise with these exotic houseplants. However, in their native lands these tropical plants have jobs to do.

A plant that dates back to prehistoric times, sago palm is not a palm but a conifer (needled evergreen). Medicines derived from the needles are used in treating cancer and the seeds are used for rheumatism. Caution, however: parts of this plant are toxic so you'll want to keep out of reach of young children and pets.
To grow indoors, provide bright light and adequate moisture. Without adequate light, new growth will be spindly and unattractive. USDA Zones 8 to 10.
