Planting & Care
Lady Palm, is a great indoor house plant. The fan-like fronds are a shiny, glossy green when healthy. Lady Palms will tolerate lower light than many other palms, making it a good choice for indoor or office.

You will find two styles of “Lady Palms” in nurseries and garden centres: One is “butterball”.
These plants, grown from seed, have lots of canes and a 3 – 4 foot plant can be 3 – 3-1/2′ wide. Full of leaves top to bottom and you usually find these in pot sizes from 6″ up to 14″.
The other style is a more upright and open plant. These plants have been dug from the field, are thinner in appearance but have more height.

Sunlight: Dappled light is best during the summer. In winter, it can tolerate light shade.

Soil: Rhapis will grow in almost any well-drained soil, but prefer a soil mixture. Soil density should be firm and allow water to slowly filter through. All roots and the base of canes should be covered to retain moisture. Use pebbles or sand to increase drainage.

Water: Water liberally during the summer, ensuring perfect drainage. In winter, reduce watering to once a month or every other week, depending on the temperature.

Temprature: Plant works best between -5°C to 38°C.

Fertilizer: For fertilizer dosage, leaf colour is one of your best guides:
Rich green indicates fertilizer levels are adequate.

  • Keep these removed as they occur.
  • Keep your palm s foliage clean and initially keep an eye out for insect problems.
  • Mealy bug, thrips, scale and sometimes even aphids can be a problem but a good wash down with soapy water should control these pests.
  • Insect problems need to be addressed as soon as they are noticed.

  • PROPER CARE: Watering in rest period – sparingly Watering in active growth period – moderately Light – bright filtered Temperature in rest period – min 7°C max 16°C (45-61°F) Temperature in active growth period – min 16°C max 24°C (61-75°F) Humidity – low
