The beautiful, leafy Chamaedorea or Parlour Palm has been popular in Britain for over a century and with its timeless elegance, it’s easy to see why.

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.

Plant Care

Keep your Parlour Palm out of draughts and away from radiators. He will be happy in shaded areas. Avoid placing him in direct bright sunlight as this will scorch the leaves. Water sparingly in winter and more frequently in summer. Do not let your Parlour Palm stand in water.

Read our plant care guide, to help keep your Chamaedorea looking fresh.

    Received this as part of a house warming gift. Lovely, healthy plant approximately 15 inches in height in a dark grey ceramic pot. Would have been good if the common and Latin name was included with the plant. Arrived one day later than was advised by the delivery company (DPD) but no harm done.

    Bought this plant along with a 2 other succulents which have been placed in the bathroom windowsill, they have really brightened my room up! All 3 of my new plants i only water once every blue moon and they’re so beautiful and green! Arrived earlier than i expected which was a great surprise, all of my plants have came with a cute tag to explain the plants needs which is super helpful- my house is like a jungle since discovering the little botanical.

    I ordered four houseplants to bring some life to my home office during lockdown – I am absolutely delighted with each one, they were so carefully packed and arrived with moist soil. They make a wonderful display – thank you so much!

    I ordered this along with another plant. This was my first ever plant order online. I was sceptical at first as I worried how it would be packaged. Honestly it came packaged so well. It is a beautiful plant that brightens up the house, and it’s handy as it comes with the pot. Would definitely recommend.
