Originating from South America, the Chamaedorea Elegans not only has a very stylish name, but it is also easy to grow indoors. This is because it has a high tolerance for lower light levels, so it will thrive in your home or office. They are often referred to as a Parlour Palm because the Victorians were fond of displaying them in parlours.
With their exotic, elegant beauty, they considered them a botanical status symbol and liked to position their Parlour Palm for neighbours and visitors to admire, while also showing them that they had money to spend.
These days, the gorgeous Chamaedorea is not only used as a houseplant, but it can often be spotted filling out a bouquet. We think this lovely little plant doesn’t need to hide and can hold its own all by itself, especially when planted in one of our gorgeous, bespoke ceramics. And it’s not just us who thinks this guy is fab; as well as being gorgeous, the Parlour Palm features on the NASA list of the best air-purifying plants; a plant buddy with benefits!
The Chamaedorea is fab if you have pets as he is part of our pet friendly houseplant range so he’ll keep your four-legged friends happy too. So it is not just pretty, it is pet-friendly too!
So, from the Victorians to NASA to our four-legged friends, everyone loves a Parlour Palm.
