Chamaedorea seifrizii

Common Name(s):

Previously known as:

  • Chamaedorea erumpens
Description

Delicate lacy fronds adorn this tropical plant commonly grown as a houseplant in temperate climates.  Excellent houseplants for low-light areas.   They require some humidity so spray the fronds once a week or place the plant on a saucer with pebbles.

Quick ID Hints:

  • Cane-like stems
  • Leaf evenly pinnately compound, terminal pinnae fused
  • Petioles have thin, membranous base

Subtropical to 6.5', with erect and cane-like growth. Family name Arecaceae (Palmae)

Floral rachis turns orange with age and is more congested than that of C. elegans; used as specimen and accent. 

Prefers medium light, slightly moist soil and medium relative humidity; pest problems.
