Chamaedorea brachypoda

Habitat and Distribution
Guatemala, esp. near the town of Izabal. Honduras. Wet lowland forest on the Atlantic slope; to 150 m elevation.

Description
Moderately fast growing, dioecious, forest understorey palm. Rare in cultivation, critically endangered in the wild. It has smooth, green clustering stems, 0.9 m. (3 ft.) tall, 0.7 cm. (0.3 inch) diameter.  A very attractive little palm, which ought to be much more widely grown. Requires a sheltered, shady and moist position. This species makes a wonderful ground cover as each plant spreads far by creeping root-stocks.

Culture
To about -1.11°C (30°F), but freezing is best avoided. Cold Hardiness Zone: 9b

Comments and Curiosities
Etymology: From the Greek brachy meaning short, and podo meaning foot, perhaps in reference to its rhizomatous branching stems, or short petioles or peduncles.
