About Areca Palm

History

The Areca palm is a member of the Arecaceae family, which includes all true palms. Areca palms were sold for generations under the botanical name Chrysalidocarpus lutescens. However, recent studies showed that the plant is actually closely related to other Dypsis species of its naive Madagascar and so was renamed Dypsis lutescens.

Cultivation

The Areca palm is native to the Indian Ocean Island of Madagascar. In the wild, they can grow up to 40 feet tall. The Areca palm is also a clustering palm, which means there is not one main trunk but a series of trunks.

Care

These tropical palms love warmth, humidity and good light. Although not hard to look after they don't thrive on neglect and need regular checks to ensure they are being looked after properly. Water when the top few cms of soil has dried out, but make sure the roots never sit in water, which could cause root rot.

Did you know?

The Areca palm was included in a NASA study on air-purifying plants and was proven to be the most effective plant out of all those tested at breaking down harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) found in modern homes.

Toxicity

This plant is non-toxic so although not advised should pose no harm if accidentally chewed or eaten by your furry friends.
