Areca palm

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.

Care requirements:
Environment: Both indoor and outdoor
Light: High dependency on light and needs to be placed in a bright indirect light spot.
Watering: Allow to dry out between watering. Wait a day or two if you can feel moisture in the top two to five cm of the soil.
Fertilizing: Fertilize in spring and summer only, with a palm fertilizer or a standard houseplant fertilizer at half strength
