Parlor Palm

The parlor palm (Chamaedorea elegans) has long been used as an indoor plant. This lovely plant with deep green foliage was first discovered in Central America and brought back to the United States where it immediately became a popular indoor palm. It grows in attractive clumps with light-textured foliage cloaking thin trunks. The fronds are popular in flower arrangements. 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).
