The Rhapis Palm (Rhapis spp.) is a lovely feature palm with its’ dense dark green foliage being a contrast in a well-lit position indoors.


How to grow rhapis in a pot

  1. Choose a well-lit spot indoors or a protected position in a patio situation. 
  2. Fill the pot with Yates Premium Potting Mix.
  3. Remove the plant from its container, try to avoid disturbing the roots excessively. 
  4. Position the plant in the middle of the new pot. A large pot about twice the size of the root ball would be ideal. Fill in around the plant with potting mix and water well.  
  5. Water on a regular basis in summer but reduce in winter when conditions change. Will tolerate dry soil for short periods.
  6. Feed every two weeks in the growing season (spring to mid-autumn) with Yates Thrive Houseplant Liquid Plant Food.
