Bamboo Palm, aka Chamaedorea Seifrizii, which has other names such as Reed Palm, Cane Palm, or Clustered Parlor Palm, has clusters of stems that produce deep green leaves as they arch away from the stem. It got its name from its likeness to bamboo, with the clumped stems and markings by leaves that have been shed.
They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.
They will thrive in medium to bright light, but also can tolerate low light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed almost anywhere in the room but remember, plants will grow based on how much light they receive.
Allow the top quarter of the soil to dry before watering again. This usually takes about 3 - 4 days in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions.
They will do well in average humidity environments but will appreciate a little bit of humidity if provided, give them a mist daily or get a humidifier.
Protect your Palm from cold drafts from windows, air conditioning vents, or doors. They also grow quite slowly, so don't be distressed if it isn't constantly growing. Spider mite loves all palms, give your palm a shower every once a while or when you see them will keep them away.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
