Rhapis excelsa

Bamboo Palm, Bamboo Plant, Dwarf Fan Palm

These expensive fan palms have several reedlike or bamboolike trunks, from which sprout deep green palmate fronds. Often used as pot or tub plants, Lady Palms are grown as clumps in lawns or as hedges in southern California and southern Florida. Their yellowish flowers are followed by small berrylike fruits. Water regularly during growing season, allowing soil to dry between waterings. Reduce water at other times. Remove yellow or faded leaves. Wipe off dusty leaves or wash with water.
