Chamaedorea elegans, the neanthe bella palm or parlour palm, is species of small palm tree native to the rainforests in Southern Mexico and Guatemala. The parlor palm is one of the most heavily sold houseplant palms in the world. It is one of several species with leaves that are harvested as xate.
The Parlour Palm, or Parlor Palm in America, or by its Latin name of Neanthe bella is one of the most sought after indoor palms around today. The reasons for this couldn't be more straight forward - It thrives in our homes and workplaces where other species may struggle and it's also one of the cheapest palms you can buy.
Popular since Victorian times it has kept hold of this prestige through its easy going adaptive attitude to low light and humidity levels, all the while being effective at improving air quality and making it on to NASA's list of 50 Indoor plants that clean the air. This is an equally great plant to start with for the beginner or the seasoned houseplant collector.
The beautiful, attractive and delicate appearance of the Parlour Palm is made up of light green fronds about 8in / 20cm long that have a dainty like texture which are loved by interior designers.
Whilst a slow grower it should reach a respectable indoor height of 2ft / 60cm after a number of years, and you may (with good light) receive regular clusters of flowers which for a palm kept indoors is pretty rare.
It's typically sold as a cluster of smaller plants and thereby it creates an immediate compact, full and almost bushy appearance which is easy to mistake for a well grown single potted up plant. Casting your eyes down to where the multiple number of stems emerge out of the soil will give the game away though!
When searching in the shops, textbooks or other websites, it may not be listed as Neanthe bella and instead you may find it going by Collinia elegans or the more popular Chamaedorea elegans. Ultimately like many palms there's only one cultivar you can generally buy and so providing you can recognise it by sight (look at the pictures on this page for that) you will know immediately if you're looking at a true C. elegans or not.
