Rhapis Excels – Lady Palm

Description

Rhapis excelsa, also known as lady palm is a beautiful palm with large fan shaped leaves and glossy, dark green fingerlike leaflets. They used to be the crème de la crème of indoor plants and have been popular indoor plants for 100s of years. It’s no surprise they are still super popular today and can be found around the world in hotel lobbies, office buildings or in airports. Lady palms are hardy, air-purifying indoor plants that are easy to look after. They are very versatile as they can tolerate full sun to complete shade, though the ideal conditions for the plant would be partly shaded area with morning or afternoon sun in a well drained moist soil. If the sun is too hot, like midday summer sun, it can burn the leaves.
Lady palm can grow very tall, though they are slow growing. If grown in a pot the size of the plant is restricted by the growing conditions. In a larger pot with rich soil with plenty of water and light the plant can grow tall and bushy. In a small pot or poor soil, light and little water can result in stunted growth though it would still be an attractive plant.

Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum)

 

Peace Lily

Botanical name: Spathiphyllum Difficulty level: Easy. The Peace Lily is a resilient, adaptable, low-maintenance and easy-to-care-for house plant.

Peace Lily – General Description

The Peace Lily is a gracefully vibrant and elegant perennial that features large leaves and flamboyant white flowers—similar to those of a Calla Lily. The plant is native to tropical rain forests of America, and comes in a variety of sizes: anywhere from 61-127 cm tall. The white blooms of the Peace Lily typically appear in the spring and are more of a modified leaf than a multi-petaled flower. As such, they look a lot like white flags of surrender/peace—hence the name, Peace Lily. Plants that are well cared for may bloom again in the autumn. The blossoms typically last for around two months, after which the plant enters a non-blooming period. Along with being beautiful, the Peace Lily helps to cleanse the air that we breathe, by removing airborne toxins. It was featured in research performed by NASA (the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration) and is recognised as one of the Top Ten Household Air Cleaning Plants. Plants and pots are sold separately

How To Care For Your Peace Lily

Here’s some basic guidance on how to take good care of your Peace Lily. Light. Peace Lilies thrive in low light conditions. They don’t need direct sunlight, and in fact prefer partial shade or bright indirect light from a nearby window. Peace Lilies can also tolerate fluorescent light, and have even been known to thrive in rooms with no windows at all. Soil & Water. Provide your Peace Lily with evenly moist, well-drained soil. Watering at least once a week to keep the soil moist, is a good rule of thumb. The plant will sag when it needs water—making this part of its care quite easy. Temperature & Humidity. Your Peace Lily will thrive indoors in temperatures that most people find quite enjoyable: Its preferred temperature range is 18-29°C, with relatively high humidity. It’s best to keep the plant away from cold drafts or temperatures below 7°c. Nutrients & Fertiliser. Provide Peace Lilies that are growing in bright light a liquid 20-20-20 fertiliser about every six weeks. If the plant is growing in low light, then feed less frequently (i.e. every three months). Toxicity. Peace Lilies are toxic/poisonous to both cats and dogs. If your cat or dog chews on a Peace Lily, it will cause irritation to its mouth and stomach. In most cases the animal will quickly stop eating the plant—and hence not ingest large enough amounts to cause serious poisoning. Nevertheless, these plants should be kept away from all pets and small children. Pests & Other Problems. The Peace Lily is largely immune to insects and diseases. A regular wiping of the leaves tends to prevent aphids, spider mites, or mealybugs from accumulating. If these pests do happen to invade, spray the Peace Lily with an insecticidal soap.

Helpful Hints & Additional Care Tips

  • If your Peace Lily doesn’t bloom, this likely means that it’s not getting enough light. The solution is to move it to a brighter location.
  • Peace Lilies can be quite sensitive to chlorine—so if your water supply is heavily chlorinated, fill a watering can with water and let it stand overnight, so that the chlorine can diffuse before it’s used to water the Peace Lily.
  • The large leaves of the Peace Lily tend to accumulate dust. To keep the plant healthy and looking beautiful, wipe the leaves periodically with a damp sponge or cloth.
