The Parlour Palm was popular with the Victorians and remains a firm favorite. An elegant plant, easy to look after, with excellent air purifying qualities. They are undemanding in terms of light, water, temperature, humidity, and feed, making them perfect for those of us that like low-maintenance room-mates.
Compared to some other houseplant palms, chamaedorea elegans care is quite basic. It is one of the more forgiving houseplants, though it has its preferences.
Not edible. Non-toxic if accidentally ingested.
Light: They do best in bright, indirect light but tolerates moderate sunlight as well. Avoid direct sunlight as it can cause its leaves to dry out.
Water: The amount of water the Parlor Palm needs will depend on how much light it receives. Brighter light means more water, while lower lighting means less water. On small palms, the surface of the soil should be dry before giving it more water. On larger palms, the soil should be dry at least one inch down in the soil before adding water.
