Product Description

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. Pale golden yellow flowers emerge that give way to small, bright orange ornamental fruits that are referred to as ‘betel nuts’.

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.

Great looking plant!

Really enjoying my Areca Palm Tree. Arrived in very healthy condition, much fuller than I expected and taller than advertised. Remains healthy after spending a couple of days boxed on my porch because I was out of town and being reported. Good experience all around.

Nice so far

The Areca palm arrived w/ some visible stress from the journey but has since bounced back. It looks amazing in its new pot and appears to be growing quickly. I would recommend this tree.

Pretty good

Palm appears healthy. Came a bit smaller than I expected but close to the size range described. Interesting note is that the immature shoots and leaves of an Areca palm look fairly different from the mature ones, FYI. This confused me for a short while as I was curious if I received the wrong palm (which I didn't). Looks nice in my house.

Areca Palm

My palm tree arrived as scheduled. It was in great shape. I was honestly surprised at its appearance because it looks nothing like what I was expecting. I’m anxious to see it grow and start taking the shape of a palm tree.
