Care of the plant Chamaedorea elegans or Parlour palm

The Chamaedorea genus, Arecaceae family, includes more than 200 species of palm trees native to tropical and subtropical regions of America. Some species are: Chamaedorea elegans, Chamaedorea carchensis, Chamaedorea arenbergiana, Chamaedorea oblongata, Chamaedorea stolonifera, Chamaedorea tepejilote.

Common names: Neanthe bella palm, Parlour palm, Dwarf mountain palm. This species is native to Mexico and Guatemala.

They are small palm trees with elegant leaves that reach 2.5 meters in height.

They are easy to grow plants that need natural lighting, but without direct sun. The temperature should be warm; they do not resist frost.

Water frequently in spring and summer with lime-free water so that the soil is always moist (never flooded); in winter, reduce the risks considerably.

The soil must be rich in organic matter and have good drainage.

Fertilize in spring and summer every 10 days with mineral fertilizer.

They reproduce by seeds sown after winter.
