Common name: Cat palm
Family name: Arecaceae
Approximate height: 3' - 5'
- Foliage: Green
Light requirements: Medium to bright indirect light. Keep it shaded from hot, direct midday sun in summer. Give your palm a quarter turn once a week to expose all sides to sunlight. Chamaedorea cataractarum responds well to artificial light, if you don't have room near a window.
Water: Keep soil moist but not wet or soggy. Under-watering will cause leaves to yellow, Salt/chemical buildup can cause tips of leaves to burn. Over watering will cause entire fronds to turn brown.
