Description: Rhapis is a genus of about 10 species of small palms native to south eastern Asia from southern Japan and southern China south to Sumatra. The species are commonly known as Lady Palms. They are fan palms (Corypheae tribe), with the leaves with a bare petiole terminating in a rounded fan of numerous leaflets. The plants have thin stems growing to 3–4 m tall, branching at the base, forming clumps and are dioecious, with male and female flowers produced on separate plants.
Several species are cultivated as ornamental plants. RHAPIS EXCELSA PALM, or Lady Palm, is a great indoor houseplant. The fan-like fronds are a shiny, glossy green when healthy. Rhapis Palms will tolerate lower light than many other palms, making it a good choice for the home or office. RHAPIS EXCELSA IS A FAN PALM. Although most fan palms are seldom sold as houseplants and will mostly be found in large interior scapes because of their size and spread, the Rhapis Palm is well suited to life in the home. It has more of an upright growth habit than many other fan palms. It has a fairly tough constitution.
Care: Rhapis Palms will tolerate lower light than many other palms, making it a good choice for the home or office.
