Cascade palm (chamaedorea cataractarum)
Styled in Sunday Pots: Stone
Cascade palm (chamaedorea cataractarum) is a super versatile plant that can suit both indoor and outdoor. They originate from the jungles of Central America. Their large, dark green leaves with a glossy surface give out a feeling of freshness and originality - a superbly elegant plant.
Cascade palms grow to a height of about 1.9-2.3 meters tall and produce shrubs along the trunks. These palms grow naturally in warm climates near streams and freshwater sources, so they need more moisture both in soil and in the environment than other palm species. Regular misting helps to prevent browning on the tips of the foliage.
