Price on Application

Rhapis humilis (Slender Lady Palm, Dwarf Lady Palm) Resembling its close cousin Rhapis excelsa, this lady palm has thinner stems and drooping leaf segments that give it a more graceful appearance. It grows slowly to form large clumps of densely packed stems that reach heights of 6 to 8. The slender stems are wrapped in tightly woven light brown fiber and are topped with clusters of 5 to 10 leaves. The palmate leaves are medium green, held on 12 petiols and grow from 2 to 3 in diameter. Leaves are deeply divided into 1 wide segments that droop downward. Male flowers are dirty white and borne on 2 branched infloresences. Fruits are never seen as no female plants of this species remain.
