Positive palmbob On Nov 6, 2003, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

This is a nice Chamaedorea that looks similar but sturdier and more colorful than the common Chamaedorea elegans sold everywhere in outlet stores, drug stores and nurseries. It may not make quite as resilient an indoor plant, but excells as an outdoor palm. It develops very red and attractive seeds (if fertilized successfully).
