The World's Most Popular Indoor Palm
Why Areca Palm Trees?
Areca Palms boldly go further up North than any other palms have before because they thrive in pots and low light conditions. If you live outside of the Areca Palm’s recommended growing zones, you can simply plant them in containers and bring them indoors during the colder months.
And with Areca Palms, you'll breathe easy because they filter and clean the air. They filter dry, stale air and remove its pollutants and irritants while pumping out fresh, clean and humid oxygen. Plus, each stem is covered with dark, lush, green leaf blades that bring a tropical look to any room of the house.
As a house plant, the Areca Palm greets and entertains guests with year-round color. Creamy white flowers emerge that give way to small, bright orange ornamental fruits that are referred to as ‘betel nuts’.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Great palm tree
Beautiful palm tree growing fast indoors. Arrived well packaged and with plenty of soil in a pot. Will order a few more after winter.
Happy and flourishing addition to our home!
Our Areca palm arrived in excellent condition and was well protected during shipment. We reported the palm immediately upon arrival and it is now flourishing. We couldn't be happier with this beautiful addition to our home!
I hope it survives
My palm arrived almost a week after placing the order. Everything looked great on the outside but the Palm was in very rough shape inside of the box.
Nice tree follow-up customer service lacking
I like the tree but it arrived with some black spots on it that have become more numerous with time. Although I emailed FastGrowingTrees to ask for advice on how to treat these spots and get rid of whatever infestation that was causing them I never heard back. So although the tree is nice the follow-up customer service doesn't seem to be very good. I am hoping to obtain advice from another source as to how to treat this infestation.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a location that receive a lot of sun (6+ hours daily) in colder climates but indirect sun in warmer climates. When you're ready to plant, dig your hole 2 to 3 times the width and slightly shallower than the root ball. Hold the tree straight as you begin to back fill the site, tamping down the soil as you go. When finished, apply water to settle the soil and remove any air pockets.
If you plant in a container, select one that is 1 to 2 times larger than the pot your plant arrived in. Choose a location on the patio, backyard, or front/side of the house, providing it will receive full to partial sun.
2. Watering : Stick your finger into the potting soil down to a depth of 2 inches and feel around for any moisture. If the soil is drying out, go ahead and water until you see it escaping the drainage holes and then stop. If there is still moisture present, leave it be until it dries a bit more.
3. Pruning: Palms do not need much pruning except to remove damaged fronds. Be careful not to pull off any dead or damaged fronds - always remove any damaged fronds by pruning them off with a sharp pair of sterilized pruners.
4. Fertilizing: You can apply palm fertilizers that contain specific nutrients best suited for these varieties. If you prefer, you can use a balanced fertilizer such as an 8-8-8 formula for quicker growth in spring and summer. To avoid yellowing and maintain a healthy shade of green coloring, feed your tree a few spoons full of Epsom salt or a fertilizer that contains nutrients like manganese which will prevent the yellowing and shriveling of the fronds.
