Chamaedorea Seifrizii is a member of the Arecaceae family hailing from forested regions of Central America – Honduras, Guatemala, and Mexico.
The slow growing bamboo palm does best in bright, indirect sunlight. Keep in mind that Cane Palm naturally grows as an understory plant in forests. It has a good shade tolerance and is happy with filtered light or dappled sunlight.
This makes it an excellent candidate as an office plant under low light conditions.
Take care and avoid both direct sunlight and dark low light corners.
The palm’s natural look and symmetry can be maintained by turning the container 1/4 turn every week to allow light to penetrate the foliage canopy of your bamboo palm trees.
Bamboo palms prefer consistently moist soil, but you must never allow the potting soil to stay soggy. Instead, the soil should always be just barely, perceptibly damp. After watering allow the plant to completely drain. As mentioned above the bamboo palm plant likes to stay evenly moist, remember that’s moist, not wet.
Most growers use a granular, slow-release fertilizer in growing their palms. Seifrizii is sensitive to excess fertilizer salts (aka soluble salts).
Bamboo Palm likes a high humidity level, so be sure to provide the plant with a humidifier, a pebble tray or regular misting.
This plant is safe for dogs and cats.
