Rhapis humilis

Rhapis humilis is a clumping, bamboo like palm with thin, hairy trunks and palmate leaves attached by wirey petioles. The leaflets on it's palmate leaves are smaller than its cousin Rhapis excelsa, with each leaf splitting into 12-15 leaflets. This elegant plant is much more rare than its counterpart. It makes for a good houseplant, growing well in containers and low light conditions.

What makes our plants so special? Our location on the cliffs of Santa Barbara receives over 280 days of sunshine a year and we utilize our indigenous soil, mixing it with a specialized amendment. Our plants are routinely watered, fertilized, and trimmed. We always aid our plants to proper health when needs arise, and we do so without the use of sprays.
