Chamaedorea elegans, the neanthe bella palm or parlour palm, is species of small palm tree native to the rainforests in Southern Mexico and Guatemala.
It is often cultivated in temperate regions as a houseplant, where it grows to 2 m (6 ft 7 in) tall with very slow growth, tolerating low levels of humidity and light, though it prefers medium to high humidity and bright indirect light.
Watering the parlor palm too much will cause growing problems and could possibly kill it off. Very little watering is needed in the winter. Making sure the roots have good drainage is something they like. These are not demanding for the grower when it comes to providing enough light. Any shaded type room will suffice with indirect sunlight. Re-pot only when necessary, like when it becomes pot bound, because these do not like being disturbed too often .
