Plant Description

  • Appearance: Chamaedorea plants typically have slender, upright stems that bear pinnate (feathery) leaves. The fronds are divided into multiple leaflets, creating a lush, tropical appearance. The leaves are usually dark green and can add a touch of elegance to indoor spaces.
  • Size: Table palms are relatively small and compact. They typically grow to a height of 2 to 6 feet (60 to 180 cm) when grown indoors. This makes them suitable for tabletops or as floor plants in smaller spaces.
  • Light Requirements: These plants thrive in bright, indirect light. They can tolerate lower light conditions but prefer indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sun exposure, as it can scorch their leaves.


  • To maintain the health and appearance of your Chamaedorea (table palm), use a balanced, liquid houseplant fertilizer. During the growing season, which is typically spring and summer, dilute the fertilizer to half strength.
  • apply it every 4-6 weeks. Reduce or cease fertilization during the winter when the plant is not actively growing.
  • Watering when the top inch (2.5 cm) of the soil feels dry. Be cautious not to overwater, as Chamaedorea plants are sensitive to root rot.
  • Soil: Use a well-draining, peat-based potting mix to ensure proper drainage and moisture retention.


  • Pot with drainage: Use a pot with drainage holes to prevent water from accumulating in the soil and causing root issues.
    • Saucer: Place a saucer under the pot to catch excess water and protect your surfaces.
    • Humidity tray or room humidifier: Chamaedorea plants appreciate higher humidity levels. You can use a humidity tray filled with water or a room humidifier to maintain suitable humidity.
    • Pruning shears or scissors: Trim away dead or yellowing leaves to keep the plant looking healthy and maintain its shape.
