The Mountain Palm has its origins in Central America, especially in areas of Mexico and Guatemala, where it grows as a kind of bundplante in the great and high mountain forests.
Bjergpalmen in recent years become a very popular plant in Europe. It is a very hardy plant, which requires a minimum of care.
If you want to pamper yourself with a plant that creates maximum coziness with minimal care, is bjergpalmen definitely a good choice.
Botanical name: Chamaedorea elegans.
Watering: A good rule of thumb for watering of your bjergpalme is that it does not tolerate being bathed in the water, but it must also not be crunch-dry. To feel the earth's surface, if the plant the top layer of soil is dry approx. 2 cm down, you must waters.
Location: This plant tolerates almost all locations. But if you must choose between direct sunlight throughout the day or part shade, so choose partial shade – that way it will thrive best.
Temperature: It thrives at room temperature about 12 to 25 degrees.
Humidity: If you have very dry air in the room where the plant stands, you can spray it with a forstøverflaske regularly in the summer. If the plant is in the vicinity of a radiator, you can also put a small bowl of water on top of a warm radiator – it increases the humidity a bit.
