Chamaedorea seifrizii BurretArecaceae
Chamaedorea is the generic name derived from the Greek words chamai, meaning "on the ground", and dorea, meaning "gift", possibly in reference to the easily attainable fruits. Native to Mexico, it is very similar to C. elegans, although less cultivated than C. elegans. The specific epithet is in honour of William Seifriz, an American biologist.
It is also an excellent indoor palm.
It is one of the species selected by NASA in its Clean air study for its capacity to eliminate benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene from the atmosphere.
