Plant Origins

Mexico and Guatemala

Plant Bio

Chamaedorea elegans, also known as the Neanthe Bella Parlor Palm, is one of our favorite true palms. With the right care and many, many repottings, the Parlor Palm can grow to well over six feet tall. But do not repot more than once a year, as their roots like to relax. Although in the same family as coconuts and dates, which produce edible fruit from flowers at the top of the plant, this plant produces inedible fruit from flowers at the base of the plant. Cultivated since the Victorian era, this species of palm is prized for its resilience to indoor conditions and reliable habit.

Cheaper than a beach vacation.
