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.

Areca Palm is sometimes known as Dypsis lutescens or Areca lutescens, more common names include Butterfly Palm, Yellow Palm and Golden Cane.

Horty Hints

Leaf me alone! As the Areca Palm grows older the leaf tips will naturally turn brown. Brown leaf tips can be trimmed if desired but do not trim new growth from the centre of the stem as this is the only point of growth, and doing so will stop that leaf growing altogether.

Take one for the team! Older, outer stems will die off naturally. Remove any dying stems to help keep the plant healthy as these will still sap valuable nutrients from the soil.

Less is more! To encourage the best growth from your Areca Palm, try not to overwater. Avoid soggy soil.
