The Areca Palm is a truly elegant indoor palm. Multiple stems emerge from its base, with numerous long, gracefully arching fronds growing close together along the stems. Leaves are pinnate, ie feather-shaped. It is one of the top air-purifying plants and a natural humidifier that will improve the air quality of your home or office as well as adding a relaxing tropical feel.
Water well, keeping the soil moist at all times. In summer, Areca Palms can be thirsty, particularly if located in a warm spot, however less water will be required during the winter. Do not overwater. Ideally let the soil dry out slightly at the surface before re-watering.
Tolerant of both light shade and bright, indirect light, however avoid excessive amounts of either.
Average household temperatures between 15-25°C are fine, although the warmer the better. Will not tolerate temperatures below 10°C.
Liquid fertilizer can be applied during the growing season, once a month or so should be sufficient.
