Bamboo Palm

Called a Bamboo Palm for its likeness to bamboo – clumping, and stems marked by leaves that have been shed – the Bamboo Palm has a nice, soft touch with deep green leaves that arch from the stem.  It is one of the few palms that will tolerate some lower light levels, but still needs moderate to high light to thrive.  If you’re looking for a versatile palm that has a great reputation for filtering out indoor air pollutants, this is a great choice.

The Bamboo Palm is available in 2 sizes at around 3 feet in a 10″ pot and 5+ feet in a 14″ growpot.

Read below for more information on caring for your new plant.

Description

If you’re looking for a soft-tropical touch in a nicely lit room, the Bamboo Palm is a great choice for you .  Here’s what you need to know if you’re getting a Bamboo Palm:

Watering

If you have bamboo outside, forget everything you think you know about watering this plant inside.  Unlike its outdoor cousin, the Chamaedorea should be watered to maintain soil moisture considered damp, not wet; overwatering can cause the leaves to yellow and drop.  Please see our watering guide for more information.

Light

While this palm can tolerate lower light levels than other palms, it will thrive adjacent to an east-, south-, or west-facing window.  So, good filtered natural light or bright florescent light will keep this palm growing strong.

Nutrition

Like other plants shipped fresh from Florida, you won’t need to feed this palm for at least 6 months after you get it.  That’s because there is residual nutrients in the soil from when the palm was being propagated.  After 12 months, it can be fed quarterly with a complete fertilizer formulated for interior plants.  Please refer to our plant nutrition guide for details.

Cleaning

This plant, with its numerous stems and plentiful leaves and leaflets can be a challenge to clean.  While we still prefer a cleaning regimen with water and a light soap solution, it would be okay to break out the feather duster on this plant.  Make sure your feather duster is clean though – it’s a primary way to get bugs from one plant to another.  And since the Chams are susceptible to spider mites, it’s especially important with this plant.

Pruning

The leaves of the Bamboo Palm form sheaths around the stem.  The older leaves at the bottom of the plant will yellow and turn brown, and it’s easy to just give a little twist and pull these leaves off.  The only time you’ll need pruners to care for a Cham is if one of the stems gets too tall or out-of-line with the rest of the plant.  In that case, we recommend pruning the stem at the base where it emerges from the soil.  You should never cut a stem in half because the plant does not generate new growth from mid-stem pruning cuts.

Bugs

There’s always a chance for a mealybug to set up camp on your Bamboo Palm.  Look for the little white cottony mealybugs at the base of the leaves, on the stems, and especially under the leaf sheaths between the sheath and the stem; mites will hide on the bottom side of the leaves and produce webs.  Be extra vigilant when scouting for mites, as they can do irreparable harm quickly often mistaken for dust on the underside of the leaves.  If you see either of these, break out the spray bottle with a light soap solution and spray them daily ’til they’re gone.

Trouble

Keep an eye out for the bugs mentioned above, and you’ll enjoy this palm for a long while.

    my bamboo palm was packaged so well that it was still in great shape, even after fedex set it by my front door upside down! it’s been sitting right next to my large window for a couple weeks now and is doing well. the set up instructions were very detailed and easy to follow and were sent a few days before i received my palm. there are also helpful videos around the site that i watched as well. i still reached out to make sure i wasn’t doing anything wrong (first time plant mama here) and Sue responded in a kind and timely manner, even over the weekend- wasn’t expecting to hear back until monday! i’m so excited with how beautiful it is- it adds the perfect touch to my bedroom. i honestly feel like the photo on the site doesn’t do it justice. looking forward to ordering more pet-friendly plantz in the future 🙂

    • Sue Waltzer (store manager)

      Although it is rare for our plants to be delivered upside down, our shipping team (John and Shannon) pack the plants so well that it will hold them in place so the top isn’t crushed if they are inverted during transit. Thanks for the very nice comments and the beautiful photos!

    I ordered one bamboo palm and loved it so much I ordered a second one. Shipping to Seattle took about 5 days and both palms arrived in perfect shape and appear to be healthy. They really add a nice tropical splash to my living room. One thing to note if you’re ordering in the winter to a location fairly far from Florida like I was is that there’s a good chance they won’t be able to ship until spring in order to avoid cold-weather damage during shipping (my original December order couldn’t ship until March for this reason, though my second order was able to ship within days). I really appreciate that they want to ensure the plants are healthy upon arrival and they kept me up to date with regards to my order during this time. I highly recommend Plantz!

    • Sue Waltzer (store manager)

      Thanks for the nice comments! I’d still love to share your photo but promised that I would not! The plants look great in your space and I hope they bring you happiness when you look at them!

    Shortly after placing my order the temperature here in Denver dropped to below freezing. I greatly appreciate them waiting to ship my plant till the weather got better. Although it took about 2 weeks to receive my palm it was worth the wait. It arrived healthy and at about 5′ tall it is quite impressive! I’ll be ordering more in the future for sure.

    • Sue Waltzer (store manager)

      We’re so glad we were finally able to get this shipped. Mother Nature does play games with us at certain times of the year and we’ll always watch to make sure the weather looks safe to ship your new plant!

    I ordered this bamboo palm and it arrived in just a couple of days-in perfect condition. It is beautiful! Their customer service department was extremely responsive to questions I had. In fact, they followed up before and after delivery to make sure I was happy with the plant.
    I went back to them and ordered one of the planters they sell. It is a little expensive, like others have commented but I looked online and their price was in line with other sellers.
    This is a great company and I would buy from them again.

    I ordered this GORGEOUS bamboo palm a few weeks ago from PLANTZ.COM and it was an excellent experience. Beginning with my sales consultant Sue, who was informative and responsive, I have been super impressed with this company. The plant arrived and is still in great condition, living a great life here in my apartment in Alabama. It is deep green, and has a lot of new growth. Their system of keeping the plant hydrated is effective and convenient. Very well thought out from top to bottom. Highly recommend. 5 stars.

    Our Bamboo Palm, “THOR”, met all expectations and more. He was completely undamaged during transit and is absolutely thriving. We even received a phone call and a follow up email from Sue to answer any questions we might have about the Palm. Excellent customer service and I hope to purchase another large plant for our office soon. THOR is a show stopper!

    I order three plants from Plantz, including the Bamboo Palm. The Palm arrived in beautiful condition and looked just like the picture online. It has been in its new home for about a week and is requiring daily water additions to the liner irrigation system (provided with each plant). Evidently, more than usual water is required until the plant adjusts. Will Stone and Sue Waltzer have been incredibly helpful during my pre-order decision-making, ordering and unpacking process. With my lack of knowledge about house plants, I was hesitant to invest more than $5 on a plant that I could easily kill in one week or less. They have made everything easy and the Plantz website provides everything you need to know about each plant to ensure success. I love it!!
