Parlor Palm 4in (BN)
Chamaedorea Elegans 'Parlor Palm'
- Light: Low indirect tolerant. A low lit area that is still bright enough to allow you to read a book during several hours of the day without any artificial lights on. While this babe can tolerate low light, tolerate means they will survive and maintain but not likely grow much if at all. The risk of root rot is much higher in low light environments as plants aren’t drying out nearly as fast as they would in brighter light, so keep a close eye for signs of stress and be more conservative with watering frequency. (Note: Bright indirect light is always preferred for maximum bodaciousness).
- North facing exposure: within 2 feet
- East or west facing exposure: 5 feet to 8 feet
- South facing exposure: 8 to 10 feet
- Soil: Well-draining
- Water: High is preferred but this Palm is known for being a bit hardier than it's thirstier and needier brothers & sisters. For maximum bodaciousness, keep the soil slightly moist at all times but not soggy or wet (see our recommended guidelines below). When watering, always water thoroughly until water comes out of the bottom of the drainage holes. Allow excess water to drain to avoid root rot.
- Growing season (spring & summer) → Let the first 1 to 2 inches dry between drinks
- Dormant season (fall & winter) → Let the first 2 to 3 inches dry between drinks
- *IF LOW LIGHT* --> Let the top 50 - 75% of the soil dry between
- Humidity: Moderate to high. This baby will do fine in average household humidity but will appreciate an extra humidity boost if you're so inclined. You can give it a humidity boost through regular misting, placing it near a humidifier or on a pebble tray filled with water, or grouping it next to other humidity-luving plant besties.
- Pet & tiny human friendly: Yes
