The Bamboo Palm

Chrysalidocarpus Lutescens

Adored for its wild jungle vibe, the Chrysalidocarpus Lutescens commonly known as the Bamboo Palm, Areca Palm or Parlor Palm is available in a 15cm, 20cm, 25cm or 30cm plastic nursery pot (terracotta pot not included). 

Please note that our 25cm and 30cm Bamboo Palm can only be collected from our retail store, whilst our 15cm and 20cm Bamboo Palms ship throughout South Africa.

The long thin stems of this well loved indoor plant, grow closely together from the base, exposing arching fronds with thin feather shaped leaves. This houseplant is an air purifying plant and as such improves the air quality around it, making it a beautiful and beneficial addition to any room or office space...

How The Bamboo Palm Makes You Happy:

  • The arching fronds and shape of the Bamboo Palm add an instant lush feel to any space, immediately adding a touch of nature to your indoor spaces.
  • Bamboo palms absorb toxins from the air. Cleaning the air that you breathe and creating a healthier environment for you.
  • Bamboo Palms are pet friendly, so you can happily keep these beauties in homes with kids and pets.

Where The Bamboo Palm is Happiest:

  • The Bamboo Palm is happiest in moderate to bright indirect light, out of direct sunlight.
  • Direct sunlight will burn the leaves.
  • Your Bamboo Palm will enjoy a humid environment. You can place it in a warm humid space or mist it regularly with a spray bottle or mister. 

Watering The Bamboo Palm:

  • The Bamboo Palm enjoys consistently moist soil that almost dries out before you water it again. 
  • Water well, pouring until the water saturates all the soil, drains right down into the pot and out of the drainage holes at the bottom, when the top half of the soil in the pot has dried out.
  • Test the soil moisture by sticking a moisture meter or stick, deep into the pot regularly to determine how quickly the soil dries out. And use this method to determine a good watering routine.

Feeding The Bamboo Palm:

  • Fertilise your Bamboo Palm once every 2 weeks during Spring, Summer and Autumn (the growing season) with a liquid plant food

Care Tips:

  • Take your Bamboo Palm for a lukewarm shower every now and then to clean the leaves and give it a humidity boost.
  • You can prune dead, browning or yellowing leaves at the base of the stem to encourage fresh new growth on your Bamboo Palm.
  • Keep away from cold drafts.
  • Repot your Bamboo Palm once a year into a pot one size bigger.

Pest Infested Bamboo Plam

The customer service was good. But I was very disappointed as the plant was infested with Mealy Bugs and Thrips, I decided to keep it with the hopes of saving it. It still lives in quarantine at the moment. It was very beautiful when I received it but with further inspection it turned out to be quite a struggle to save it. All the other plants I bought with it, I have and had no problems with and are all growing beautifully. It was just that sad bamboo plam that made me sad.
