Rhapis humilis (slender lady palm)

Size

Probably our favourite variety of Rhapis palm, it has beautiful foliage to liven up any indoor jungle. And it's relatively shade tolerant which makes it especially versatile.

Please note, the planter is not included.

Watering

Water regularly during warmer months but allow the soil to dry out between each watering and make sure the roots are never sitting in water for a prolonged period. Water less frequently during colder months.

Light requirements 

Best grown in bright but indirect light conditions to keep the plant healthy but can survive 2-3 metres away from a window. May suffer if the plant receives too much direct sunlight. A lack of light can lead to leggy stems / low growth rate / loss of some leaves.

Care tips

  • Avoid placing the planter next to radiators or draughty windows
  • Carefully wipe the leaves from time-to-time to remove any dust
  • Prune out any brown leaves or stems by cutting as close to the next stem or the base of the plant as possible
  • Use some fertiliser during warmer months i.e. April to September (little and often is best for consistent growth)
