A very attractive small clumping palm, the Cascade grows to approximately 2 meters and provides a garden with a rich green screen if planted beside each other. Unlike many clumping palms which divide under ground or produce offsets at the plant's base, the Cascade divides in each main stem thus allowing the palm to remain reasonably compact at ground level but thicken up above thus causing a dense screen. This palm, like all Chamaedorea, grows without any sharp thorns or other form of modified leaf, making it a very child and pet friendly plant.
