Plant Care

Sunlight:

  • Do best with mostly sunny bright light exposure from a south or west facing window.
  • Also does well in direct sunlight. However, watch for leaves scorching as the plant may be getting too much light.
  • Keep away from cold windows, air conditioners and heat sources.

Watering:

  • Areca palms are sensitive to overwatering and cannot tolerate being waterlogged or sitting in a water-saturated pot.
  • Let the soil dry out slightly between waterings.
  • This plant is sensitive to minerals and fluoride in water so use distilled water or collected rainwater when watering.
  • High humidity is best but the plant will acclimate to normal room humidity, but if the air is too dry, it is common for the leaf tips to turn brown.
  • Tip:  Never prune off the brown tips of your palm fronds unless the frond is dead. Clipping brown tips might cause frond growth to cease.

Pot:

  • Pot with drainage is preferred.
  • This plant likes a tight pot, pick one the same size as the nursery pot.
  • When potting, be careful not to damage the root ball or bury the palm too deep.
  • Liquid fertilizer is strongly recommended during growing season.
  • Frequent repotting is not required.
