Parlor Palm

Chamaedorea elegans

This palm grows slowly but beautifully and is adaptable to most environments. Kind of like you and me.

This plant ships in a nursery container. See it potted here

Purifies Air

Technically all plants purify the air. This one is just really, really good at it.

A Good Gift

Low care and adaptable to most indirect light situations. How can they resist?

Pet Friendly

If Spike were to eat your plant, he'd be totally fine. Your heart? Not so much.

Despite being native to the tropical rainforests of Mexico and Guatemala, the parlor palm is perfectly suited for homes or offices since it can live in most indoor light situations.

The leafy, expansive foliage only adds to its appeal as it can add a ton of depth to any space. This plant can grow up to seven feet tall indoors as long as you keep taking care of and repotting it.

Size will vary, but total height is about 16 inches and container width is 4 inches.

How to not kill me

Watering

Water once a week

If that's too hard then we suggest getting a pet rock. Palms like to be slightly damp, but not wet.

Sunlight

Medium to Bright Indirect

Almost as adaptable and versatile as Bill Murray, this plant can handle most indoor lighting situations, but definitely prefers it to be on the brighter side. It should never be exposed to direct light.

Humidity

Slays in high humidity

It comes from the tropics so mist it frequently with a spray bottle, or use a humidifier to amp up the moisture in your space. It'll thank you by looking good and staying alive.
