Rhapis palm

Rhapis palm

Originally the Rhapis palm comes from Southeast Asia and parts of China. You can recognize the palm by its characteristic trunk, which also gives the plant its nickname. The Rhapis is also called the Bamboo palm or Stick palm. The nice thing about the Rhapis is that the plant does not like the sun very much. This makes the Rhapis a perfect shade plant, which makes it ideal as an office plant. The Rhapis comes from the Arecaceae family of plants, as do the coconut palm (Cocos nucifera) and the Areca palm.

How do you take care of a Rhapis palm?

The best location

Hardly any houseplant can stand as dark as the Rhapis palm. So it’s a real shade plant! Although a room without windows is not very suitable. The Rhapis is and remains a plant, and therefore needs sunlight. Although the plant prefers to stand as far away from a window as possible. The lighter the location of the Rhapis, the faster it will grow.

Watering the Rhapis

The watering depends, among other things, on the pitch. Did you put the Rhapis quite dark? Then it needs less water than when it gets more light. It is important to always keep the soil of the Rhapis slightly moist. Once a week a sip of water is sufficient. Pay attention to the amount of water you give. The Rhapis palm is not such a thirsty type. Every time you water too much or too fast, the risk of root rot increases.

Plant nutrition

The Rhapis palm is best fed once a month from spring to summer. For the Rhapis you can simply use Universal Plant Nutrition. We recommend not to use more than the recommended amount. We also do not recommend plant food after the summer until the winter.

Repotting

We recommend repotting the Rhapis palm immediately after purchase. The most ideal situation is the beginning of spring, fresh potting soil and a flowerpot that is 20% larger than the previous one. A Rhapis will grow roots faster as soon as it warms up. After repotting for the first time, we recommend repeating it once every two years. Although repotting once a year has many advantages. For example, a larger flower pot and fresh potting soil stimulates root growth and the production of new leaves. The annual repotting only costs you more effort, time and money.

Air purifying function

The Rhapis palm is not known for its air-purifying function. That makes sense, because the Rhapis is not such an air purifier. Well, this houseplant has other qualities.

Is the Rhapis poisonous?

The Rhapis palm is not poisonous. A plant that is completely safe for your children and pets!

Diseases and peculiarities

Another advantage! The Rhapis is not susceptible to diseases and / or pests. Should the plant still suffer from aphids or other pests, use a pesticide.
