Common name

Areca palm 


Growing conditions

A large, bushy palm which likes bright areas but do not put near radiators or in really hot dry rooms. Remove any stems ASAP that have begun to die as rot can infect the healthy stems near it.



Water really well during the growing season and only a little in the winter. Mist occasionally.

Feed with palm food every month or so during growing season.



Bright indirect light to light shade



Average warmth, don’t let it get too hot and dry or too cold in the winter

Areca sp.
