Among so many types of palm, how to identify the type of raffia? The raffia palm has multiple stapes - stems - elongated and covered by a very rustic brown fiber. The leaves, a bright dark green, are known for their palm and pleated shape.
The scientific name of Palmeira Ráfia is Rhapis excelsa, but popularly it is also known as Palmeira Dama, Palmeira Rápis or Jupati.
Of Asian origin, this species of palm tree appreciates tropical and subtropical climate and can reach to measure four meters of height. The Japanese were the first to use the species for interior decoration.
In landscaping, the Ráfia palm is usually planted alone or in groups. But it is in interior decoration that the plant stands out and gained popularity.
How to Plant the Palm Tree
The planting of Palmeira Ráfia is very simple. First you need to choose a vessel of adequate size for the plant, considering that the seedling will grow soon.
Line the bottom of the pot with pebbles and sand to ensure drainage of water. Then add a soil compound and organic substrate with NPK fertilizer. Make a hole and plant the seedling. Fill with substrate and firm the plant in the vase with your fingertips. Then water it.
The saplings of Palmeira Ráfia are made from the female plants, the only ones that produce fruits. Therefore, when noticing the small fruits in your plant, harvest them and seed them in a vase with moist substrate. Keep the pot away from the sun until the seeds germinate, when this happens transplant the small seedlings into a growing bag until they grow large enough to be planted in a definite pot.
How to Care for the Palm Tree Raffia
The care with the Palmeira Raffia include lighting, watering and proper fertilization so that the plant stays always healthy and beautiful.
The Palmeira Ráfia prefers well-lit places, but far from the sun. That's why she's so good to be grown indoors. Air-conditioned environments can damage the plant by burning the tip of the leaves. If this happens, sprinkle water on the leaves.
The waterings are determined by the humidity of the vessel. The best way to know when to water the Raffia Palm Tree is to touch the earth. When you feel the soil dry, water it.
But in general, Palm Trees Rifles grown indoors should be watered every 15 days on the hottest days and in the winter, once a month is enough. The Palm Trees Rifles cultivated on the outside of the house need constant watering. Always observe the soil before wetting.
The fertilization of the Palm Tree should be done with NPK fertilizer once a year.
Another important care is the pruning, however, there is no rule of how to prune the Raffia Palm. It is best to prune the plant whenever it is necessary to contain its growth. Also cut the dark, stained or burned leaves to ensure the health and beauty of the Palm.
