ABOUT ARECA PALMSAreca Palms, or Dypsis lutescens, is a subtropical plant similar to bamboo that’s become an incredibly popular house plant due to its ease of care even in cramped areas with indirect light. This plant was once an endangered species but it now thrives in nearly every tropical region of the world.
DETAILSThe Areca Palm is available in two sizes - * 4" Pot, Product Size : 15 Oz. * 6" Pot, Product Size : 32 Oz.
LIKESAreca Palms are easy to please! Keep the soil a bit moist during spring and summer growing season and fertilize in spring. Regular misting can help replicate the tropical humidity that Areca Palms like.
DISLIKESIf you regularly fertilize your Areca Palm, be sure to repot it every few years because the salt in the fertilizer can build up and harm your plant. Overwatering to the point of waterlogging your plant can cause root rot so be sure to let the soil dry out before watering and keep your soil well-draining.
HEALTH BENEFITSAreca Palms are one of the most effective air purifying plants, and can help minimize respiratory issues.
LOOKING AFTER THE PLANTKeep your Areca Palm in an area that gets long periods of bright light, and don’t water so often that the roots stay soaked for extended periods of time. Areca Palms can withstand pruning more than other palms so feel free to carefully trim it if it gets too big for your home.
PLANT CARE WITH PETS AND CHILDRENAreca Palms are not toxic to pets or children but their fronds can be sharp so keep an eye on curious hands.
