Chamaedorea elegans, aka Neanthe Bella Palm or Parlor Palm, is a great option for being a hardy palm that can adjust to almost any home. Cultivated since the Victorian era, this species of palm is prized for its resilience to indoor conditions and reliable habits. It is also one of the few palms that can handle low light.

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.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Pro tips

Avoid keeping them in direct sun and don't repot more than once a year, as their roots like to relax and settle into their new homes. If the fronds start to turn yellow, this could be a sign that the plant needs more water!

Care Guide

How to take care of Parlor Palm

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.

They need to be watered when the top half of the soil is dry to the touch. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you water again. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

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.

You can feel comfortable having this plant around your home in the potential case where your pet feels like nibbling on it. However, we typically recommend keeping your pets from eating any of your houseplants.
