Dwarf Chamaedorea?

Recommended Posts

Howeadypsis

This is a palm I rescued last year. The shop was selling a bunch of these 'mini' palms, quite trendy at the moment, and someone must have abandoned this one, as it was aat atop a waste bin in the cold weather. Anyhoo, I took it home and nurtrued it, and now its growing(minus a couple of seedlings which didnt make it).

I narrowed it down to a Chamaedorea, like C. elegans but a  lot smaller. Is it a dwarf form ('Bella'?)

Yikes. Is that a reguler sized coffee cup?

Well, its what we in England call a tea mug, not what sure what constitutes a regular size coffee cup. ;)

The palm is planted in a small pot, which is sat in the cup.

In fact, it does look like Ch. elegans. Bless it's little heart.

Thanks Jeff, I thought that too, but I presumed that it would have to be a young C elegans to be this small, in which case the new leaves would be quite simple, yet the leaves look like miniature mature leaves(I believe the term is character leaves?)

C. elegans have mature looking leaves even at a very small size.  They are very cute.

My mum has a C.elegans about that size, which is pretty much identical with fully pinnate leaves.

Cham elegans always has a pinnate first leaf.

They may be common, but they are nice really.
