Chamaedorea elegans (Neanthe bella / Parlour Palm)
Light: Shade tolerant. Brighter, indirect sunlight will encourage flowering.
Water: Water once the soil begins to dry out. Do not overwater and ensure the plant has proper drainage to prevent root rot.
Temperature: Average household temperatures above 18°C. Needs a minimum of 10°C in winter and at night.
Humidity: Can tolerate some dry, indoor air, but does better with a little extra humidity and will appreciate the occasional misting with lukewarm water, which will also help keep the leaves free of dust. Brown leaf tips are an indication that the plant is not getting enough humidity.
Feed: Feed with a weak solution every few weeks during the growing season. Do not feed during the winter.
Air Purifying: This plant filters airborne toxins and is part of our clean air plant collection.
