Parlour Palm - Camaedorea elegans
The parlour palm is the quintessential houseplant. The proof is in the name - its beauty has graced many a parlour, and even the odd palace! It thrives in low light and cramped space, and it’s also an excellent air purifier. Treat your victorian alter ego today - this one's a slow burner and will be your stalwart companion for ages to come if cared for well. Grows up to 1.5 metres is given an appropriately large pot.
Plant care doesn’t have to be a mystery….most plants come from sub-tropical places, so ensuring your plant never dries out is very important. Watering every 4-5 days is optimal (but does depend on the temperature of it’s environment – over watering makes for sad plants too!) and fertilise with liquid fertiliser every 2-3 months. If you really love your plant (and want it to love you back) mist its leaves every few days too.
ooooo……and maybe a little opera!
