Chamadorea Elegans brings together a number of palm species native to Central and South America.
They have long, upright, slightly arched, light green stems with long, compound leaves at the end, made up of lance-shaped leaflets, which are almost papery to the touch; the general appearance is rather feathery and untidy, very similar to bamboo.
Chamaedorea elegans should be grown in a bright place, but not in direct sunlight. They can also adapt to adverse conditions, but cannot tolerate excessively dark areas or direct sunlight. They fear the cold, so they should be grown indoors in winter.
They are slow-growing, long-lived plants.
