RHAPIS

These choice, slow-growing fan palms form bamboolike clumps. Foliage is deep green; trunks are covered with a net of dark, fibrous leaf sheaths. Several variegated forms exist, and fanciers are willing to pay very high prices for good examples. Good indoor plants.

Rhapis excelsa

This palm grows to 5–12 ft. tall and wide. One of the finest houseplants. Withstands neglect and poor light but responds quickly to better light and regular watering and fertilizing.
