We adore the pure class of the stunning Chamaedorea Elegans. You probably recognise this Parlour palm even if you don’t know the name! It’s well-loved, graceful and elegant - think 1920s hotel, mirrors and dinner jackets! It will give your home that sophisticated feel, like walking into a movie set! Palm house plants are always popular, and the Parlour Palm is no exception.
As an extra benefit, not only is this plant shouting style, but it’s also one of the best houseplants for purifying the air, according to a study by Nasa.
Chamaedorea Elegans, also known as the "Parlor Palm," is a popular houseplant with lush, green foliage and a slender, elegant stem. This plant is native to the rainforests of Southern Mexico and Guatemala, where it grows as an understory plant, thriving in the filtered light that penetrates the dense canopy above.
In the wild, Chamaedorea Elegans grows in moist, well-draining soils, often near riverbanks or in humid, shaded areas. It can reach a height of up to six feet and produce clusters of small yellow flowers and black, berry-like fruit.
When grown as a houseplant, Chamaedorea Elegans is prized for its durability and ease of care. It thrives in bright, indirect light and prefers well-draining soil that is kept consistently moist but not waterlogged. It can adapt to a wide range of temperatures but prefers moderate to warm environments.
To care for your Chamaedorea Elegans, keep it in a bright, indirect light location and water it when the top inch of soil feels dry. If the air in your home is particularly dry, misting the leaves with a spray bottle can help keep the plant healthy and happy. Additionally, feeding the plant a balanced fertilizer once a month during the growing season can help promote healthy growth and strong foliage.
Chamaedorea Elegans is an excellent choice for plant lovers of all skill levels, adding a touch of tropical elegance to any space. Whether you're a seasoned plant parent or a novice, this resilient and versatile plant will thrive in your home.
It’s also suitable for cats and dogs as it’s non-toxic, which is unusual in a houseplant. Attractive, plentiful fronds sprout from bamboo stems to make the Areca palm a wonderful centrepiece for a room, to give it that high society feels.
We absolutely love the pure showbiz look of this palm; it brings immediate impact to a room and gives it that glitz and glamour - the perfect accessory to your home!
