Parlor Palm




Additional Information


Chamaedorea elegans


Origin:

Rainforests in Southern Mexico and Guatemala

Common Names:

Parlor Palm


Size:

Up to 1m (h) x 80cm (w)

Growth Habit:

Small, elegant palm, provides a little height without taking up too much room.

Position:

Indoors in shady to filtered light position. No direct sun rays on the leaves as sunlight is too strong and will scorch many indoor plants. Too much light may result in yellow leaves but keep in mind that there are several reasons indoor plants can 'yellow off.'

Keep away from direct air flow from a heating or cooling vent.


General Care and Maintenance:

  • For best results, grow as an indoor plant in Melbourne, prefers temperatures above 10 degrees celsius.
  • Watering: Water regularly in spring, summer and autumn (during warm weather) but allow the soil to dry out slightly before watering again. This is best checked by scratching the top 2 cm of soil back with your finger. Water sparingly through winter. If you keep your home cool over summer, adjust watering accordingly.
  • Fertilising: Use slow release fertiliser (this is already present in all good potting mixes) however it will need to be topped up every 3 - 6 months (depending on the brand and application rates). In warm weather, apply a liquid fertiliser such as 'Powerfeed' every 1-2 weeks.
  • When repotting, use good quality potting mix such as 'The Greenery Potting Mix' available in bags in store.
  • Remove dead or damaged foliage to keep plant looking its best.



Design Tips:

Gorgeous in a bathroom on a stool or plant stand near a Maiden Hair Fern for foliage contrast.
