BAMBOO PALM, PARLOUR PALM, REED PALM Chamaedorea seifrizii
Chamaedorea seifrizii is a species of palm referred to as bamboo palm, parlor palm, or reed palm. It is a subtropical palm that grows up to 20 feet tall, and is commonly used as a houseplant. The evergreen leaves are pinnately divided, and has yellow flowers.
It is native to Mexico and Central America, and has been introduced to Florida where it is grown as a hedge plant.
Hardiness zones: 10-11
Seeds per pack: 3
Germination: Plant the seed in a small pot with seed-start mix. Be sure the seed is covered with the potting mix so it doesn’t dry out. Place the pot in a warm area, as parlor palm seeds germinate best between 85 and 95 F (29-32 C.). A heat mat is the best way to maintain the proper heat. In their natural environment, palms grow under forest canopies, so protect them from direct full sunlight. Water as needed to keep the soil evenly moist, but not soggy. If necessary, cover the pot loosely with plastic. Parlor palm seed germination may require several months.
