Positive palmbob On Jun 5, 2007, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

This is one of the best looking and easiest to grow of the suckering, bamboo-like Chamaedoreas. Unlike C costaricana, this palm has a bit more grace and arch to it, with each new culm 'swooping' out away from the point of origin, rather than growing straight up and/or out from the center. It also is an excellent potted plant. However it is a bit of a slow grower, compared to palms like C costaricana and C pochutlensis. Named after local southern California palm grower, hybridizer and collector, Louie Hooper.
