A very attractive slow growing multi-stemmed palm with large fan shaped leaves. A fantastic indoor pot plant. In tropical and subtropical climates, it can be grown in sheltered positions in the garden.
The plant has proven successful in removing airborne toxins within the home, including ammonia, formaldehyde, xylene, and carbon dioxide. Unlike other plants, who simply make oxygen, Rhapis excelsa will actually make the air in your home cleaner and safer to breathe.
