Neanthe Bella (Parlour Palm)
(Palmaceae) origin: Mexico
A slow-growing miniature palm that is quite easy to grow in the home. It has feathered leaves ranging from 4 to 8 in. in length and composed of individual leaves that become larger and coarser as the plant grows. Quite tolerant of a variety of conditions, but draughts will cause the leaves to go brown at the edges. Prefers warmth, semi-shade, and some humidity. Keep the soil evenly moist, but allow almost to dry out between waterings in winter.
