Chamaedorea elegans is also known as a Parlour Palm. They make a great choice for any house as they are low maintenance! They also have great air purifying qualities too. The palms are bright green with pinnate leaves. This means they feather out on both sides of the stems.
Where do I come from?
I am native to Southern Mexico.
They prefer bright indirect light. They can also cope in partial shade, just rotate every now and then so all the leaves receive the sun. These don’t like prolonged exposure to direct sun.
They need to be watered regularly and don’t like to dry out between waterings, so keep soil slightly moist.
They love humidity so place it in a watered pebbled tray or place containers of water around your plants which can increase the moisture in the air. It will also benefit from regular misting.
The bathroom can also be a great spot.
Am I pet friendly?
For any pet parents out there - this houseplant is non-toxic.
What size am I?
I come in a 12cm pot.
