    Chamaedorea tepejilote “Pacaya Palm” is medium sized palm found in the understory of the forests of southern Mexico, Central America, and northern Colombia up to 1600 meters in elevation.

    The Pacaya Palm is a Single stemmed palm growing up to 5 meters in height that prefers a semi-shaded position in free draining soil. The trunk has swollen nodes and the crown is composed of loose dark green fronds. The flowers are fragrant, greenish-yellow in colour, and form into clusters just below the crown. The immature, male inflorescence can be eaten as a vegetable and added to salads.

    The Pacaya Palm is the perfect palm for a shady – semi-shady garden. Planted in mass by a swimming pool or pond or long lived in a pot on the deck, patio or indoors where room is not going to be a problem.
