Chamaedorea metallica “Metallic Palm” growing in a PB18 planter bag 1.2 meters in height ready for potting up now

A most unusual frond formation and coloration, makes it very unique palm indeed. The frond is almost a cross between a standard feather style palm and a fishtail. In the correct conditions the deep green frond takes on silver metallic sheen, hence the name. Definitely a shade loving species, particularly useful in your subtropical garden planted under larger sun absorbing palms. Trunks really only to 5 or 6 feet typically making it a great under-storey plant, will never grow up fast and block views.

Easy care, responds very well to regular watering, rich soil and fertilizer. Likes shade only and not frost hardy, however this doesn’t mean it’s too tropical for NZ. Planted out of the sun under the canopy of other palms or plants it will do just fine. Also great as an indoor specimen for those low light positions. Can be community potted for good effect indoors.

Note: This palm is grown indoors
