Chamaedorea Elegans, Neanthe Bella Palm or Parlour Palm, a plant species of the Arecaceae family, is a great gift for plant lovers because it has bright green, shiny and lanceolate leaves with small yellow flowers borne on a branched stem.
Parlor palm is a slow grower and can take years to reach full height (2 to 6 feet indoors and 6 to 16 feet outdoors). This is an evergreen houseplant palm with an air-purifying and toxin-removing effect.
Its tiny yellow flowers are borne in terminal panicles, usually in the spring.
Neanthe Bella Palms can be grown in different indoor lighting conditions, but it prefers medium to bright light (north or west-facing window) with ample airflow. Avoid harsh direct sunlight.
This plant needs soil that is lightly moist. Water when the top 1” - 2” inches of the soil are dry to the touch, likely once a week. Overwatering can cause root rot, while too dry soil can make the leaves brown and crispy.
This plant needs well-drained, porous potting soil and does not tolerate soil that retains water. Choose a mix soil for houseplants.
This plant thrives in temperatures of 65°F-80°F. Do not let it in a spot where the temperature can drop below 50°F.
This plant should be fertilized once during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer.
Parlour Palm is considered non-toxic and safe for pets.
