This single stemmed palm has leaves in the shape of a chalice or fishs tail being simple, undivided and notched at the tip. Chamaedorea metallica occurs naturally in thick wet forests along the Atlantic slope and lowland rainforests of Mexico. Thrives in moist, humus rich soil and is tolerant of alkaline limestone soils. Naturally undemanding for nutrients, metallic palm responds very well to regular applications of palm fertilizer. Metallic palm grows naturally in the understory of dense forests, and is tolerant of deep shade and low light conditions. Grows well outdoors in deep shade or medium-bright light. As a houseplant, it thrives with 10-12 hours/day of artificial light. Hardiness: USDA Zones 9 - 12. Mature and established plants have been reported to tolerate temperatures down to 28ºF for four days with no leaf damage.

Chamaedorea sp. is a small palm, native to Central America, usually between 10-20 feet in height. It needs full sun or partial shade, with regular watering, and depending on the species, can survive in USDA Zones 9-11. However, for cold regions, it is recommended to cultivate Chamaedorea in a pot, as even the hardiest of varieties will struggle in cold climates.
Chamaedorea is a dioecious species, meaning it has male and female flowers on separate plants. While the female inflorescences are larger and present for a longer period of time, it is the male inflorescences that provide the most useful diagnostic characters for the identification of Chamaedorea species. Unfortunately, due to their small size and short life-span, male flowers are often overlooked and not collected.
Due to its wide range of cultivars, some of which are highly sought after, Chamaedorea populations in the wild have come under increasing pressure. Therefore, it is recommended to purchase Chamaedorea from a reputable seller, ensuring the plants have been cultivated ethically and sustainably. With regular care and maintenance, this plant can remain a beautiful feature of your garden for many years.

Chamaerops humilis (Dwarf Fan Palm) is a palm native to the Mediterranean, typically growing 5-10 ft tall, although it can reach up to 20 ft. It generally prefers full sun and moderate water, making it a great choice for those looking to bring some life to their outdoor spaces. It is a tough plant, able to withstand even heavy frosts with mature plants being cold hardy to mid-20sF for at least a short time. In addition, it is salt tolerant and can be grown close to the seaside. It also makes an excellent container plant, perfect for those in colder climates. The perfect addition to any garden, this amazing palm can be found from USDA Zone 8-11.
When growing in a pot, it is important to choose the right one for your Dwarf Fan Palm. Select a pot with drainage holes and use a quality mix of loam-based potting compost, with added grit if possible, as this mixture is well-aerated and allows excess water to drain away. Make sure the pot is large enough for the plant, as a Dwarf Fan Palm can become root-bound if left in a pot that is too small. Water your pot-grown palm regularly and feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer, such as a general purpose mix, once a month in summer. During the colder months, place the pot in a sheltered spot, such as against a wall, to protect your Dwarf Fan Palm from harsh winds.
