How to care?

  • It needs only partial sunlight that doesn’t burn the leaves directly.
  • You can keep the plant in the morning for 3-4 hours or in bright indirect sunlight.
  • Choose a high-quality, well-drained, and fertile soil for the Rhapis Palm.
  • Repot the plant with fresh organic and well-draining potting soil. 
  • Water them only once the topsoil dries out partially and avoid overwatering for best growth.
  • Rhapis palms are extremely sensitive to water containing excess chlorine, fluoride, or boron.
  • Use filtered water in case your water supply contains all the above components in excess.
  • Choose a fertilizer and feed the plant once a month during the main growing seasons, such as springs or summers.
  • Loosen the topsoil before feeding the fertilizer so the plant can easily absorb the nutrients.
  • Water them frequently in summers and reduce the session in winter and rainy seasons.
  • Keep removing the dead and infected parts of the plant from time to time for best growth.
  • Wait for at least 3-4 days before repotting the plant after delivery as it requires time to adjust the travel shocks.
  • Keep your Rhapis plant in bright direct sunlight in the beginning after receiving it, and then move it to the indoor space.
  • You can use neem oil, eucalyptus oil, etc., as a primary treatment against pests and insects.
