Shipping info
Jasmine loves to dance, swaying her multiple long stems and fanning out her pretty leaves. She's the best palm for growing indoors because she's daintier than her counterparts, but she'll also be happy on a balcony away from direct sunlight. She's a real collector's item, and her elegance will be something you treasure for years. The lady palm is #3 on NASA's list of most effective air-purifying plants.
Available Gauteng only. 
Comes in a 23cm plastic grow pot. Decorative pot sold separately

Caring for Jasmine

Light

Bright filtered light

Water & humidity

Water weekly in summer. Reduce watering in winter. If the tips of the foliage start browning it could indicate root rot and too much water. If the foliage turns grey, the soil is too dry. Prefers some humidity, but not too phased.

Feeding

Three times in summer with 1-2 sachets of Canola Meal. Don't feed in winter.

Re-potting

Re-pot every second year to one pot size up. Try not to disturb the roots, but transport the entire root ball, intact. Make sure the new pot drains well.

Atrium Top Tip

The roots of the Rhapis palm cluster at the bottom of the container. Keep this in mind when checking the soil for moisture. The top of the soil may be dry but the bottom will still be wet. You don't want to over water as the roots will rot. If planting in a balcony container remember to add pebbles/stones at the bottom to improve drainage.

Quirky plant fact

The Lady Palm originates from southern China where it grows as tall as 14 feet. It's a slow grower however, and most Lady Palms in the nursery have been there for up to 7 years. Hence why the plant is more expensive than others, but its beauty makes it a keeper!
