Enjoy the Chamaedorea Cataractarum (Cat Palm) as a low-growing palm with lots of fluff on their green stems. Create that 'by-gone day' theme with the airy display of dark green leaves and leaflets. This palm even displays a bright yellow pendulous inflorescence in early spring with shiny fruit on the flower stalk. Enjoy them daily in bright, indirect light for years to come!

This needs a very tropical environment with bright, indirect light, watering and humidity.

    Dead on Arrival

    Shipped me two Cat Palms, and then re-shipped on warranty two more Cat Palms. All four were dead on arrival due to being shocked/frozen in the UPS warehouse. Company was cool & refunded me for the plants, but buyer beware buying plants from LivelyRoot if you live in a cold weather place and/or they ship to you during winter. They won’t arrive alive.

    Cat Palm - winter order

    I love the Cat Palm but shipping in winter months to my zone is really hard on plants! It looks better than the first one that arrived broken and bent! I just do not think this type of plant should be shipped to certain climate zones where the temperature can get below 32* or lower! I am still watching it closely to be sure it stays healthy! I will contact you via email with my questions!
