Cataractarum Palm, Chamaedorea cataractarum

Originates in Southeastern Mexico and also called Cascade Palm. This suckering palm has a similar look to the Areca Palm but does not get as tall or massive reaching only 6 ft. at maturity. This palm has trunk less plants for stems unlike most palms and can have a wide spread whereby a 5 ft. tall palm can be 7 ft. in diameter. Prefers partial shade and regular watering but can be acclimated to grow in full sun. Also used indoors as a potted foliaged plant in brighter locations.
