I'm destined for the desert, so keep my environment dry and mist free to keep me happy.


I can handle a little shade that's thrown my way, but I prefer to be in bright, indirect sunlight.


I don't need much water. If my soil is dry I'm thirsty and it's time to water me!

About Lil' Parlour Palm

The Parlour Palm earned this nickname because that's where it was proudly placed at the peak of its popularity (the Victorian era) - in the parlour. These days, we tend to refer to parlours as living rooms but the name stuck (living room palm doesn't sound quite as grand). This Lil' Prick's botanical name is Chamaedorea Elegans, or it is also known as a Neanthe Bella Palm and Good Luck Palm.

Regardless of what you want to call it, this Lil' Prick is the ideal baby houseplant for beginners thanks to its super low-maintenance care. It rarely needs watering and won't mind if you're the forgetful type. While it prefers bright, indirect sunlight, it tolerates low light very well. Even though it originates from Mexico, it doesn't even demand hot weather and can thrive in temperatures as low as 10°C (although it prefers a middling 18°C). It isn't particularly fussy about humidity either. The Lil' Parlour Palm is so laid back it is even a slow grower. But, if you want it to reach its full height of 1 metre it's chilled about being repotted. This relaxed palm is also child and pet friendly.

We literally cannot think of a single negative thing to say about the Lil' Parlour Palm - heck, it isn't even precious about being kept in your living room. If you want to put it in your hallway or bedroom it's happy there too!
