Bamboo Palms (Chamaedorea Seifrizii)
The elegant Bamboo Palm is not really bamboo, but a species called Chamaedorea that closely resembles bamboo enough to derive it’s common name from it. It has tall graceful fronds that grow vertical from a center root ball, and full size specimens of 6 feet or more are truly beautiful.
Like all indoor palms, it requires a decent amount of fresh air (lobbies are best, conference rooms are not!) and Chamaedorea is a bit more tolerant of lower light levels than most indoor palms.
They are best treated with a systemic insecticide such as Merit or their fronds misted regularly, because with the natural lack of humidity in buildings they are highly prone to spider mites–tiny little insects that build nasty webs between the fronds and will suck the nutrients from their leaves, quickly killing the plant.
