Chamaedorea metallica...Fishtail Palm Wow-what an unusual plant awesome name too! This is a palm that likes to hang out in the forest of Mexico so prefers lower light levels than other palms. The foliage has a metallic sheen to it which is where the name Metallica originates from. Rarely offed especially at this size as these are soooo slow growing.
