How to care for your Chamaedorea Elegans?
Perferable place your Chamaedorea Elegans in some indirect light. Alternatively a spot with semi-shade will also do, but the plant might not grow very quickly.
Watering your Chamaedorea about once a week in the growing season is fine. The soil should preferable stay evenly moist. In between waterings the top of the soil may dry out just a bit. In wintertime watering can be reduced.
Chamaedorea will survive in any house hold or office. However, in order to let the plant thrive a bit of a higher humidity of about 60% – 70% is recommended. With a lower humidity the leaves can crisp up.
In the summer months you can fertilize your plant. In the colder and winter months no fertiliser is needed. Please always check the instructions on your own fertiliser if it has other care instructions.
Chamaedorea Elegans are not very fast growing plants. Therefore repotting regularly is not necessary. A repot once every two years should be the minimum.
The Chamaedorea is considered not toxic to animals or humans.
