Chamaedorea photo

Chamaedoreas are pinnate palms with bamboo-like, ringed stems. Its name derives from Ancient Greek, chamai meaning "on the ground", and dorea, meaning "gift", because of the plants' low-growing nature or easily reached fruits. Chamaedorea is a genus of roughly 107 species of palms, native to America’s subtropical and tropical regions. Most are small palms, but a few grow up to 20 inches. Some are suckering palms while others are solitary stemmed. All Chamaedorea plants are dioecious, these are plants that are either male or female, but never both). Perhaps the most popular species is the Chamaedorea elegans, also known as parlour palm or neanthe bella palm from Mexico and Guatemala. It’s popular as a houseplant, mainly in Victorian houses. Another popular species is Chamaedorea seifrizii, the reed palm or bamboo palm.

Chamaedoreas are moisture-loving plants with little tolerance for bright, direct hot sunlight (but exists a few exceptions) or freezing cold (again, there exists a few exceptions). They have an amazing tolerance for low light and that makes most ideal house plants.
