Maya Chamaedorea hooperiana

We are very happy to have grown and secured this little known species for sale.

The Maya palm is a smaller growing member of the Chamaedorea genus than C. seifrizii and C.costaricana. It has a lower tolerance to full sun than C. costaricana, so will need some sun protection throughout a baking hot summer.

A semi shaded, sheltered site is ideal. Moderate growth to 3 metres. Adds elegant charm to any smaller garden as a stand alone specimen or variety to a larger sub tropical wonderland.
