Chamaedorea palms originate in the subtropical and tropical rainforests of the Americas. Not all Chamaedorea make great house plants (growing up to 6m tall!) but we have a selection for you that do.

One of their great advantages as a house plant is their tolerance to shade. They are quite happy in a corner that may be dark at certain times during the day and equally at home in bright, diffused sunlight. You are therefore pretty certain to be able to find a suitable home for one of these wonderful, air-purifying plants. They are also slow growing and generally easy to look after, making them a popular choice for the apprentice houseplant collector.
