Chamaedorea elegans is shade tolerant, however brighter locations with plenty of indirect sunlight will help the Parlour Palm thrive and even encourage flowering.
Water your Parlour Palm once the soil begins to dry-out. Do not overwater and ensure the plant has proper drainage to prevent root rot developing.
This plant thrives in average household temperatures: anything above 18°C, and needs a minimum of 10°C in winter and at night to ensure the plant does not suffer.
Can tolerate some dry, indoor air, however increased humidity will help stave off brown leaf tips. Consider giving your palm the occasional misting with lukewarm water. This will also help keep the leaves dust-free.
Feed with a weak solution every few weeks during the growing season. Do not feed during the winter.
