Light requirement: shadow to half shadow
Rhapis excelsa is the botanical name of this palm type. The origin of this palm is the tropical and subtropical areas of southern China. This palm has bushy stems that grow up from the underground roots. The Rhapis has beautiful green pure leaves and, through its bushy stems, an exclusive appearance. Originally you find this palm tree in the wet woods where he covers the slopes. The palm is preferable in a shady place, and if the room is loaded, the ideal temperature is 20 °. In winter you can also put him in a cooler place, until 5 ° is no problem.
The Rhapis is an ideal plant for shade and does not consume too much water. The soil should always be kept moist.
If you buy the plant in a substrate and a water meter, the water supply will become easier. See also Rhapis with ornamental pot and water meter elsewhere on the site.
