The Chamaedorea elegans is probably the best-known relative of the Pacaya palm. Just like the Chamaedorea elegans, it also impresses with its appearance and ease of care. It has a beautiful habit with elegant, dark green fronds and a curled trunk up to 4.5 m high when fully grown. At a young age it is a very attractive indoor palm. Among other things, it also impresses with its rapid growth, its good adaptability to not too bright locations and edible inflorescences! It comes from the rainforests of Central and South America.

light: Light-partial shade, without direct sun. Also tolerates shade well.

temperature: All year round between 20 and 25 ° C

humidity: Keep moderately moist. Now and then spray so that humidity is provided.

Multiplication: By seeds that are soaked in lukewarm water for 24 hours and then sown in perlite or coconut. However, seeds must be very fresh as the seeds of the Chamaedoreas quickly lose their ability to germinate. Ensure high humidity and a constant temperature of approx. 25 ° C. If the seeds are fresh they will germinate after a week.

earth: Very well drained substrate. Too much moisture on the roots leads to root rot.

fertilizer: use a palm or green plant fertilizer from May to October.
