Description for Chamaedorea Elegans, Parlour Palm

Since parlour likes high ambient moisture levels, daily misting of parlour house plants are recommended. Place the parlour where it can get direct natural lighting if possible. Most indoor parlour cannot retain all their foliage and some leaf drop is to be expected.

Follow fertilizing directions for the size container you have. A good potting soil, mixed with perlite for drainage works great. Just keep a check on the soil and allow it to dry out between watering. Parlour likes water, but loves drainage.

Do not leave your containers of parlour outside during the winter months and expect it to live. In cold climate zones you must move the container into a protected warm area during the cold winter months.

Planting and care

 

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Palms prefer partial shade (or partial with some sunlight), as they are more than happy in low-light conditions. Parlour plants also like to have fertile, slightly acidic, well drained but moist soil. The key to watering parlour is to water often enough and deeply enough to keep the soil moist. They can handle a winter rest in cooler conditions, not less than 50 degrees F They do tolerate central heating. A slow release fertilizer that only needs to be applied twice during the growing season. Other fertilizers may need to be applied up to four times during the growing period and they should have instructions that come with them.

Caring for Chamaedorea Elegans

  • After your parlour palm has had time to establish itself you can move it into a shady spot or an area with indirect sun.
  • The care is fairly simple, just water your plants when the soil becomes dry.
  • Using a palm fertilizer is a good idea, but you should wait with newly planted palms for at least two months.
  • Mites can be an issue with palms so keep an eye on the undersides of the leaves.
  • If you notice mites, simply wash the leaves carefully in a warm water with mild soap.
  • Do this periodically until the mites are gone.
  • Also, remove brown and damaged leaves regularly.

Typical uses of Chamaedorea Elegans

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.
