    • Bold and Striking: This palm is easily recognizable and makes a bold statement in groups or as a single plant. With larger bifid leaves, it is sure to capture attention.
    • Versatile and Adaptable: Whether in the garden or in a container, Chamaedorea ernesti-augusti is a versatile plant that can thrive in warm, sheltered and moist environments. It is also perfectly suited for a potted specimen that can be moved indoors during cool winter months.
    • Unmatched Elegance: With several variations and sizes of leaves, the form originating from Belize and northeastern Guatemala is the most sought after. It adds an unmatched elegance to any setting.
    • Fascinating History: This palm was discovered and brought to Europe in the first half of the 19th century. It is still grown commercially in limited quantities and has increasing interest in using the leaves in the floral industry.
    • Unique Features: As a dioecious genus, Chamaedorea is known for having separate male and female plants. Additionally, the Greek translation of Chamaedorea means “gift on the ground”- a nod to the small stature and pleasant surprise of discovering this gem.

    "Came in perfect condition--thank you!"


    "Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."


    "This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"


    "Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"


    "This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
