The Areca palm is a wide spanning and tall growing palm, making it a wonderful feature plant.
It is native to Madagascar, where it grows in humid forests, the moisture keeping its luscious green fronds fresh. The unique golden base brings the jungle feel to any home. Fantastic in a bright large family bathroom as it adores moisture.
Best space & place
Bright but indirect light Full sun will scorch the leaves. Keep indoors all year.
When to water & feed
Water freely when in growth, keeping the soil moist, but not soggy. Apply a balanced liquid fertiliser two or three times during the growing season. Reduce watering in winter.
Need to know
The leaves can consume a lot of moisture and so it is a very good idea to mist at home - in the nursery we regularly spray overhead. The base of the stems harden as the palm ages and mottle slightly with black spots, this is perfectly natural.
Pollutant Absorption Credentials
The Areca Palm has been shown to help remove formaldehyde and Xylene from the air which can be given off by building materials, synesthetic fabrics, and some paints and varnishes, making it ideal for those who have recently decorated.
