This Chamaedorea elegans is also known as a Parlour Palm, and it's one of the most sought after houseplants at the moment.
It thrives in our homes and workplaces where other species may struggle.
It became a popular houseplant in Victorian Times, when houseplant were all the rage! You would find this plant in the Parlour. Hence the name.
The Parlour was the 'best' house in the room and where you would entertain guests. The parlour would hold all of your most prized possessions, including your Parlour Palm. Got to love a bit of plant history!
This houseplant is easy going and like living in low light and dry areas of your home. But just because it's easy care doesn't mean it's not hard working! Oh no. This little leafly plant is busy working hard improving air quality and making it on to NASA's list of 50 Indoor plants that clean the air.
Make sure you only water this plant when the soil is dry. Underwatering is better than overwatering.
It's a great plant for beginners of collectors.
The parlour plam is also completely pet safe.
Delivered in a 12cm plastic pot.
