Chamaedorea metallica, Parlor Palm, Miniature Fishtail Palm

Click to see full-size image Chamaedorea metallica
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Parlor Palm, Miniature Fishtail Palm
Origin: Mexico, Central and South America
Large shrub 5-10 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliagePalm or palm-likeSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

The popular and much loved metallic palm is the only palm that has foliage with a dark metallic blue green sheen like the color of gunmetal. 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.

Naturally tolerant of low light conditions, metallic palms are perfect for understory plantings and ideal as houseplants. Metallic palm stands out as a small accent plant due to its remarkable metallic evergreen foliage that provides spectacular backdrop for flowering plants in shade gardens. The metallic palm also will grow beautifully on the eastern side of a house where it will get little or no sunlight.

Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Bamboo Palm
Origin: Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliagePalm or palm-like

This attractive indoor palm produces long bamboo-like canes which in time form a tall, columnar shaped plant, perfect for today's interiors. In common with other chamaedoreas it tolerates low light well, requires a rich soil with an abundance of water and is generally reliable, and exceptionally easy to look after. Keep it out of direct light, feed during the growing season, and keep the soil slightly moist all the time.

Chamaedorea sp., Chamaedorea

Click to see full-size image
Chamaedorea ernesti-augustii
 Chamaedorea sp.
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Chamaedorea
Origin: Central America
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterPalm or palm-likeUnknown name

Stems obsolete to erect, slender or (rarely) subarborescent, solitary or (C. costaricana) cespitose, unarmed. Petioles unarmed, sometimes with conspicuous, yellowish, abaxial stripe, the sheath splitting or closed, sometimes (C. costaricana, C. graminifolia) forming brief crownshaft, rarely (C. costaricana) with distal, ligule-like structure. Leaf-blades simple and bifid to pinnately compound. Peduncle short to elongate, usually becoming orange to red in fruit, with 1-several elongate, apically bifid, persistent to deciduous bracts. Ripe fruits smooth to verrucose-echinulate (C. crucensis), globose to obovoid or ellipsoid, orange to red or (usually) dark purplish or black, with basal stigmatic residue.

Chamaedorea is unique, among palm genera occurring in Costa Rica, in being dioecious. This, however, is not a character of practical utility either in the herbarium or in the field. Most species are relatively nondescript, but can usually be recognized by the combination of small size (always less 10m tall), solitary (except C. costaricana), green stems, spineless and otherwise glabrous foliage, papery, apically bifid peduncular bracts, and ebracteate flowers. Some species have a yellowish abaxial stripe on the petiole and leaf-rachis, which is diagnostic, and species with pinnately compound leavs usually have sigmoid pinnae.

Male and female infls. of the same Chamaedorea sp. are sometimes very different. The ephemeral and seldom-collected male infls. and flowers generally provide the most useful diagnostic characters for Chamaedorea species; however, complete information is ideal. in synchrony.

Costa Rica and Panama comprise a center of diversity for Chamaedorea, which is especially species-rich in mid-elevation rain forests. Many species (especially those with simple leavs) are ornamental, and assiduously sought by unscrupulous collectors. Wild populations of such species are under constant siege, and some have been extirpated. Most Chamaedorea species are rare and local to begin with, which exacerbates the problem.

Chamaedorea tepejilote - seeds

Click to see full-size image

Pacaya palm - is found in the understory of the forests of southern Mexico, Central America, and northern Colombia. The immature male inflorescences of the plant are considered a delicacy in Guatemala and El Salvador. The unopened inflorescences resemble an ear of corn in appearance and size. Indeed, the word tepejilote means "mountain maize" in the Nahuatl language and was selected because of this resemblance. "Pacaya," the common name for both the plant and its edible flower could be derived from the volcano of that name.
Pacaya has a somewhat bitter taste, although less so in cultivated varieties. It is eaten in salads (especially fiambre, a salad traditionally eaten in Guatemala on the Day of the Dead) or covered in egg batter and fried. The latter dish is called "rellenos de pacaya" and is often served with tomato sauce, like chiles rellenos.
