Plant with organic peat moss or top soil added to the hole. Water regularly...this palm can suffer damage from going too dry over long periods, though it doesn't like "wet feet." Fertilize during the warmer months of spring, summer and fall, at least once per season. In a sunnier location, you'll need to fertilize and water more frequently to keep the palm fronds a healthy green and the plant full.
- Light Needs: Bright indirect light
- Watering Needs: Allow the top 50% of the soil of a Rhapis Palm to dry out before watering.
A graceful palm for garden areas that allow it room to spread out, this palm grows multiple thin trunks topped with fronds like little green umbrellas. The fronds above are slightly offset from lower ones, so many are visible at the same time to create a lush, layered look. Even though lady palms are clustering, they grow so slowly they're easily controlled and won't get away from you. Their rounded shape gives an appealing formal yet tropical appearance.
