Rhapis excelsa (Bamboo Broadleaf Lady Palm)


Fresh Seeds of Rhapis excelsa (Bamboo Lady Palm) with full instructions for germination.

An elegant, small, evergreen palm, native to China and Vietnam, with long-stalked, handsomedark-green, architectural foliage divided into narrow lobes, held on slender, cane-like stems. Panicles of tiny yellow flowers are borne among the leaves in summer.

Makes an eye-catching and highly-ornamental houseplant or conservatory plant, outside of the tropics (frost-tender) — growing best within bright, filtered light or dappled shade — and for best foliage appearance they prefer a room with some humidity.

Slow growing, they can be kept under 6 feet within a pot, growing naturally to around 12 feet within open ground.


Please note: full germination instructions are printed on each pack.
