Emerald Palm-Chamaedorea Elegans

Common Name: Emerald Palm, Chico Palm

Botanical Name: Chamaedorea elegans, kam-a-DOR-ee-a EL-e-ganz

  • Member of the Arecaceae or Palmae (palm family).
  • It is native to Mexico and Guatemala.
  • Date, coconut and Washington palms are common relatives.
  • Leaves are 18-24 inches long with fronds 1 inch wide in a pinnate arrangement.
  • Classed as a monocotyledon, leaves mostly parallel veined.

55-60 F.

Common Uses:
  • Commonly used as an indoor plant. From the Greek “chamai” (on the ground) and “dorea” (a gift) meaning that the fruit hang low to the ground and are therefore easy to get.
  • Members of this family provide the world with many products including food (coconut and oil), ornamental, wax, fibers and beverages.
  • While it can be grown in southern Florida, most of this crop is grown in Mexico and Guatemala for both economic and cultural reasons. Namely, even in southern Florida it can get too cold for this species.
  • Using C. erumpens, Fujino et al. (1981) showed that vase-life was increased from about 7 to 28 days in water simply by re-cutting the stems.

    Thank you for your timely delivery of Palm leaves.
    due to Covid 19 we were unable to gather, but families stood in small groups 20' apart on the sidewalk and waved the palm branches as one of the congregation walked by leading a donkey. Thank you for the leaves

    When we received these they weren't as green as we hoped.
