Chamaedorea seifrizii (Bamboo Palm) 50cm pot
Has long bamboo-like canes. The canes grow to form a dense cluster of fronds with, dark green to grey leaves. Chamaedorea seifrizii, resembles bamboo in appearance.
It grows to about 7 feet. they are clustering with about 20 or 30 individual plants. Each stem is long and slender with “nodes” very similar in appearance to Bamboo. Although plants are commercially clumped together to form shrub-like specimens, this palm naturally spreads by suckers or offshoots also similar to Bamboo. The stems are tall and have about 10-15 fronds each with about 12 dark green pinnate leaflets. As the old fronds die, these should be trimmed off and the leaf bases or sheath allowed to dry out. Later these should be removed as this promotes good plant hygiene and exposes the attractive light green “bamboo stem”.
