Bushy parlour palm, likes a bright spot - 120cm high
Light: Tolerant of both light shade and bright, indirect light, however avoid excessive amounts of either.
Water: Water when the water meter has been on minimum for 2-3 days.
Temperature: Average household temperatures between 15-25°C are fine, although the warmer the better. Will not tolerate temperatures below 10°C.
Humidity: Areca palms enjoy high humidity levels. Place on a shallow gravel tray filled with water and mist regularly. Ideal in kitchens and bathrooms.
Feed: Add a hydroculture liquid feed every 2 to 3 watering during spring/summer.
Care tips: Avoid using leaf shine on Areca Palms. Remove any dying stems to help keep the plant healthy. Brown tips are common, these can be removed if required but avoid cutting into fresh green foliage.
Air Purifying: Palms clean and improve air quality by filtering formaldehyde, benzene and carbon monoxide toxins from the surrounding environment.
Height and Growth Rate: 3m although this is unlikely indoors. Areca palms are moderate to fast growing.
