Areca Palm Plant
About Plant- The palms have smooth, sometimes golden trunks that are reminiscent of bamboo culms. Their fronds are narrow and full, almost like bamboo leaves. When used outdoors, they are often grown in clumps as a privacy screen.
Areca Palm Plant Care
Light- Outdoors, these plants like part shade or constant filtered sunlight. Indoors, areca palms do best with bright light like from a south- or west-facing window and may last longer with some direct sunlight.
Soil- For potted indoor plants, a peat-based potting mix with lots of material for drainage is perfect. Outdoor specimens do best with a slightly acidic soil that is very well draining.
Water- Areca palms are sensitive to overwatering and cannot tolerate being waterlogged or sitting in a water-saturated potting mix. Let the soil or potting mix dry out slightly between waterings.
Temperature and Humidity- Indoors or out, this plant does best in average temperatures of 65 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit. High humidity is essential to keeping an areca palm looking good.
Fertilizer- Feed with a weak liquid fertilizer once or twice during the growing season and not at all during the winter.
