History

Lady palm is a palm family member native to China, where it thrives in damp mountain forests. During the 17th century, Japan imported palms from China and it has then been spotted in Europe and America. It was also then became a prized ornamental in the Far East. Lady palms in Japan were planted throughout the palaces of military commanders because it was said to fend off those with harmful schemes. Rhapos in Greek means ‘needle’, thus, referring to its pointy leaves.

Care guide

This Rhapis Excelsa for sale in Manila thrives best in bright indirect sunlight. Placing them in direct sunlight may burn its leaves. Meanwhile, suggested watering schedule is once a week or when the top 2 to 3 inches of the soil has dried already. Make sure to let excess water flow out of its pot to prevent root rot.

Propagation

This indoor plant can be propagated through root division. This should be possible while repotting as these indoor plants produce new stems over the long run. Once you’ve desoiled your matured plant, you will see new offshoots apart from the mother plant. You can simply separate these stems cautiously by hand and plant them into independent pots. Care for your cuttings as you would with an ordinary Rhapis in bright indirect sunlight.
