This well-known and much-loved small palm from Mexico has stiff, simple, and undivided leaves that are dark green, almost black, with a metallic sheen, from which the plant derives its name. Very tolerant of low-light conditions, it makes an ideal house plant, or, in warm temperate to tropical regions, a useful understorey palm that will grow in deep shade.
