Chamaedorea Elegans 9cm
An extremely beautiful small feather-leafed palm that grows slender, reedy trunks in the rainforest of southern Mexico and Guatemala. Since Victorian times, it’s been grown as a houseplant, gracing ‘parlours’ all over the country.
The parlour palm is an easy-care plant that tolerates low amounts of light and dry air. It is also an effective air purifier, capable of filtering and purifying stale air.
For optimal results, grow your chamaedorea in a bright, partially shady location using free draining compost.
During the growing season, water frequently and fertilise monthly. Keep the compost on the dry side over the winter.
