A clump-forming, small, water-loving, moderately fast growing, dioecious, forest understorey palm. Rare in cultivation, critically endangered in the wild. It has smooth, green stems, 0.9 m. (3 ft.) tall, 0.7 cm. (0.3 inch) diameter with no obvious leaf scars, and small partially segmented, pinnate (feather) leaves, 0.5 m. (1.5 ft.) long, 0.25 m. (0.8 ft.) wide, dark green above and, light green beneath.

Leaves have a deeply notched apex. 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.

Chamaedorea brachypoda can survive freezing temperatures to about -3.8°C (25°F), but freezing is best avoided. It naturally occurs in wet rainforest or seasonally wet forest in montane locations. In this type of natural environment temperature fluctuations are slight, and this palm prefers a constantly cool or mild climate with little temperature difference between day & night, and Summer & Winter. Under extreme freezing conditions we recommend you keep this palm as dry as possible, and well wrapped up.
