The beauty of plants indoors brings a sense of relief to the urban dwellers, with several aesthetic & health benefits.

The urban apartment life style only gives us a little space outdoors to work with, considering this why not we bring the garden indoors.

Chamadoraea is one of the premiere indoor palms, succeeding beautifully as one for many decades, often in the same pot rarely ever outgrowing its situation.

The Parlour Palm was popular with the Victorians and remains a firm favourite for indoor green décor. Use palms to break up a section of blank wall, to fill an empty corner, to soften the edges of windows or furniture, or act as a living sculpture at the end of a side table. An easy way to dress up any palm is to grow it in an attractive container. Look for pots that match your decor style or color scheme. 

Light: Chamaedorea palms are not demanding for the grower when it comes to providing enough light. Any shaded type room will suffice with indirect sunlight. Do not keep in direct sunlight otherwise leaves can get burnt. This particular variety of palm tolerates lesser light compared to other palms.
