Planting and care

Metallic palm thrives in moist, humus rich soil and is tolerant of alkaline limestone soils. Naturally undemanding for nutrients, metallic palm responds very well to regular applications of palm fertilizer.
Metallic palm grows naturally in the understory of dense forests, and is tolerant of deep shade and low light conditions.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Partial shade to Shade. Tolerance to low light conditions make this palm perfect for growing indoors. Chalky, Loamy, Sandy soil : moist but well-drained. Water the plant until the soil is evenly moist. Do not over water the palm plant or leave it sitting in water. Check often to be sure that the plant is draining properly. They can handle a winter rest in cooler conditions, not less than 50 F. (10 C.). They do tolerate central heating. Feed your palm regularly during the growing season. If possible, use a palm fertilizer, which will contain all the micro nutrients and extra potassium and manganese. Potassium deficiency is especially common in palms—it shows up in yellowing or brownish fronds.

Caring for Chamaedorea Metallica Palm

  • Palms grow best when you let their roots fill the pot.
  • They need soil-based potting compost and should not be repotted unnecessarily.
  • They are sensitive to chemicals and will be damaged if you expose them to aerosol sprays.
  • If you need to treat them with insecticides, be sure what you use is suitable for a palm.

Typical uses of Chamaedorea Metallica Palm

Special features: Palms tend to lend themselves to creating shadows and reflections. You can stand a palm in an alcove that is lined with a mirror and create stunning effects. If you put one on each side of a fireplace, it’s even doubly stunning. The shadows cast by the palm’s fronds can pattern a plain wall. Spotlights can create good strong light for bold shadows.

These are quite dramatic. Don’t position spotlights too closely because this generates too much heat for the palm to withstand. Finally, lighting the plant from below can cast shadows onto opposite walls and even the ceiling.

Ornamental use: This plant is used for ornamental purpose.
