Product Description

Bamboo Palm: Do you have a low light area in your home or office that needs some green Do you want a low-maintenance but graceful-looking palm to show off Well, it doesn't get any better than Chamaedorea florida, or the Bamboo Palm. The Bamboo Palm, or Reed Palm, is a relatively small, graceful palm that grows to about 7 feet. Usually, when these plants are sold in nurseries or seen in collections, they are clumped with about 20 or 30 individual plants. Each stem is long and slender with "nodes" very similar in appearance to bamboo. Although plants are commercially clumped together to form shrub-like specimens, this palm naturally spreads by suckers or offshoots that are also similar to bamboo. The stems are tall and have about 10-15 fronds each with about 12 dark green pinnate leaflets. As the old fronds die, these should be trimmed off and the leaf bases, or sheaths, allowed to dry. Later, these should be removed to promote good plant hygiene and expose the attractive light green "bamboo stem." Although the Bamboo Palm is mostly used indoors because it prefers shade, it can withstand higher light and will produce flowers and fruit in these environments. The flowers arise from the leaf sheaths, or coverings, and are colored a dull yellow. The fruits are usually small, orange/red, pea-sized berries. The Bamboo Palm, like most of the Chamaedorea palms, is native to Mexico and Central America, where it thrives as an understory palm. Today this palm is grown in most nurseries and is common in malls, offices, homes, and courtyards. Very easy to grow and maintain. As with most palms, the soil should be well drained. Applying household fertilizer in the summer months will keep these palms green and healthy. Thrives in low indoor light but can tolerate some sunlight if acclimated. Keep evenly moist but not consistently wet. Hardy Zones 10-12
