It looks like a bloom stalk to me also; check out the bloom photo in our database Parlor Palm (Chamaedorea elegans)

Absolutely! As the stalk ages, you could observe if your tree is male or female, if interested.

Yes it's a bloom stalk, thank you all for your help! I thought my plant was lacking nutrients or sun! I have always cut them off because I didn't know what they were... I will leave them next time and see what happens!

So glad your fears are dispelled! Quite the opposite, a blooming palm is a healthy one.

If your pot has more than 1 trunk, there are multiple individuals and you could have both male and female. Mine finally made some seeds after about 20 yrs, probably from being able to be outside early that spring. Manual pollination might work, if one wanted to try.
