A Parlor palm is a palm with vibrant, lush tropical fronds. Also known as Chamaedorea elegans, the parlor palm is one of the best types of palm for beginners, the parlor palm grows best in tropical or indoor conditions with bright, indirect sunlight, well-drained acidic to neutral soil, and temperatures between 65°F and 75°F, though it also adapts to lower light  Enjoying a parlor palm in your home also helps purify and clean the air, add humidity, and provide an attractive touch of green that can live for up to a few decades as an indoor and longer outdoors in the right climate.


Before it was established as a popular house plant, this lovely plant with deep green foliage was discovered in Central America and brought back to the United States where it immediately became a popular indoor. It grows in attractive clumps with light-textured foliage cloaking thin trunks.


It is possible to sometimes find single-stalk specimens, but most often the palms are grown in small clumps so that they resemble palm-like shrubs in attractive pots. The fronds are popular in flower arrangements, Palm Sunday decorations, and wreaths because they can survive for up to 40 days after being cut from the plant. Parlor palm is a slow grower and can take years to reach full height (2 to 6 feet indoors and 6 to 16 feet outdoors). Best to keep on working table.
