Chamaedorea Elegans

Parlor palm is a popular houseplant and easy to care for. Although the palm family is large, only a few are best suited for terrarium and vivarium. Chamaedorea elegans is one of those few, adapting beautifully to average dart frog perfect conditions.

It has elegant, green leaflets on arching fronds, giving this palm a feathery canopy shape. It will add a great accent to your vivarium.

Origin: Mexico

Light: Low light to moderately bright light. If leaves are yellowish-green, it may be getting too much sun.

Water: Keep soil lightly moist. Provide good drainage.

Humidity: Mist the foliage regularly to increase humidity.

Temperature: Normal to warm room temperatures 65-80°F/18-27°C

Soil: 2 parts peat moss-based potting mix and 1 part sharp sand.
