How to identify the Palm Tree Raffia
Among so many types of palm trees, how can you tell the type of raffia? The Bastpalme has several stapes – stalks – extended and covered by a very rustic brown fiber. The leaves, a bright dark green, are known for their palm and pleats.
The scientific name of Palmeira Ráfia is Rhapis excelsa, but in the vernacular it is also known as Palmeira Dama, Palmeira Rápis or Jupati.
This palm is of Asian origin and appreciates the tropical and subtropical climate. It can grow up to four meters high. The Japanese were the first to use the kind of interior decoration.
In landscaping, the Ráfia palm is usually planted alone or in groups. But it is in the interior that the plant stood out and gained popularity.
How to plant the palm
The planting of Palmeira Ráfia is very easy. First, you must choose a vessel of appropriate size for the plant, bearing in mind that the seedling will soon grow.
Lay out the bottom of the pot with gravel and sand to ensure the drainage of water. Then add a soil compound and organic substrate with NPK fertilizer. Make a hole and plant the seedling. Fill the substrate and fix the plant with your fingertips in the vase. Then pour it.
The seedlings of Palmeira Ráfia are made from the female plants that are the only ones producing fruits. So if you notice the small fruits in your plant, harvest them and sow them in a vase with a 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 are big enough to be planted in a particular pot.
How to take care of the Palm Tree Raffia
Care with the Palmeira Raffia includes lighting, irrigation and proper fertilization to keep the plant healthy and beautiful.
The Palmeira Ráfia prefers well-lit places, but far from the sun. That’s why she’s so good at growing at home. Air-conditioned environments can damage the plant by burning the tip of the leaves. If this happens, sprinkle water on the leaves.
Irrigation is determined by the humidity of the vessel. The best way to know when the raffia palm should be watered is to touch the earth. If you feel the soil dry, pour it.
But in general, palm trees that grow indoors should be watered every 15 days on the hottest days and winter once a month. The palm rifles that are grown on the outside of the house must be watered constantly. Always observe the soil before moistening.
The fertilization of the palm should be done once a year with NPK fertilizer.
Another important care is pruning, but there is no rule on how to prune the raffia palm. It is best to prune the plant whenever it is necessary to stem its growth. Also, cut the dark, colored or burnt leaves to ensure the health and beauty of the palm tree.
One of the main reasons for the burnt and brown leaves in the Palm Tree Rapphas is the exaggerated sun exposure. Try changing the course plan. When the leaves fall, make sure the palm does not overflow.
How much is a Ravine Palm?
Another advantage of this plant is the price. Palmeira Ráfia is cheap and the average price is usually around R $ 10. What makes it expensive, however, is the type of ship in which it is sold. In this case, some copies may reach R $ 160.
