The parlour palm is known as such due to the Victorians growing these in their ‘parlours’ where they would entertain guests. It is amongst the easiest of houseplants to grow with high tolerance to low light and low humidity levels.
The attractive growth and undemanding characteristics of chamaedorea elegans make it a very popular houseplant. They are quite slow growing and will attain a height of around 2 feet if grown as a potted houseplant.
Supplied as a tall 12cm potted plant – instant display
Will be shipped within 7 working days.
Place in a bright warm location but not in direct sun or next to a radiator.
Water regularly during spring and summer - if you live in a 'hard water' area then it's best to use rain water. Let the top 1cm of soil dry out between waterings. Reduce watering during the winter months. These plants need humidity so mist the leaves regularly, or stand on a pebble tray. Perfect for placing in a terrarium due to its slow growth rate
