    Palms tend to lend themselves to creating shadows and reflections. You can stand a palm in an alcove that is lined with a mirror and create stunning effects. If you put one on each side of a fireplace, it, s even doubly stunning. The shadows cast by the palm, s fronds can pattern a plain wall. Spotlights can create good strong light for bold shadows.

    These are quite dramatic. Don, t position spotlights too closely because this generates too much heat for the palm to withstand. Finally, lighting the plant from below can cast shadows onto opposite walls and even the ceiling.
