- Botanical Name: Chamaedorea elegans
- Common Names: Parlor palm, Neanthe bella palm
- Description: The parlor palm is a palm tree native to Southern Mexico and Guatemala. This tropical plant has been cultivated as an indoor plant due to it being able to thrive in low light conditions and is also an excellent air purifier.
- Light:The Parlor Palm doesn't tolerate direct sunlight, so exposing your plant to direct sunlight will cause sunburns on its leaves.
- Water: The Parlor Palm enjoys weekly waterings but it is very sensitive to overwatering. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings, especially during the winter. It also enjoys occasional misting.
- Temperature: The Parlor Palm prefers room temperatures between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. It can tolerate a low of 50 degrees Fahrenheit but will suffer if touched by frost. Keep away from cold drafts near windows, vents, and outside doors. It will thrive with average humidity. If your palm begins to develop dry leaf margins or brown tips, it's most likely caused by cold drafts or prolonged dry periods. To remedy this, raise the humidity levels before overwatering.
Frequently Asked Questions
Plant Care Tips
How do you package the plants?
Our plants are shipped in custom sustainable boxes to ensure a healthy delivered plant. During colder months (November-April), we ship all plants with a heat pack for extra protection.
Where are the plants grown and shipped from?
Our plants are grown and ship from our greenhouses in California and Florida. Due to this, it is possible that your items may arrive in multiple shipments.
Why are my plant leaves dropping within the first few days of receiving them?
Suggestion: This is normal and will happen often because the plants have been through shipping and are being placed in a new environment. They're in shock. Give them a week or 2 to sit back and relax in their new home.
Why are the plant leaves turning yellow?
Suggestion: Most often this is a sign of overwatering. Our plants are typically watered before shipping therefore, they wont need to be watered when you receive them. It's always a good idea to touch the top 1-2 inches of soil to see if its damp. If so, do not water the plant right away.
Should I repot my plants when I get them?
Suggestion: It might be best to wait a week or so until your plants are adjusted to their new environment. They're already a little stressed from being flewed out, give then some time to relax and settle in.
