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 houseplants 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 to care for doesn't mean it's not hardworking! Oh no. This little leafy plant is busy working hard to improve air quality and make it onto 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 or collectors.
The parlour palm is also completely pet safe.
Delivered in a 9cm plastic pot.
