Chamaedorea seifrizii, or Bamboo palm, forms clusters of stems each of which are very narrow. It resembles bamboo in appearance. The stems are divided into sections made up of nodes at which leaves are produced and long regions between the nodes called internodes. After the leaves have fallen the nodes can easily be seen along the stem, which gives both bamboo and the bamboo palm stems their characteristic striped appearance. At the base of the stem, just above the soil surface small roots called adventitious roots can often be seen. The individual leaves of Bamboo palm, which are often referred to as fronds, can be as long as 45cm (1.2 feet) and contain up to 14 shiny, dark green, leaflets on each side of the frond. Separate plants produce pollen (staminate) and ovule (pistillate) producing flowers in clusters or inflorescences. The inflorescences can often be seen below the palm fronds. When mature the small fruit are black and only about 1 cm (1/2 inches) in diameter.
