The Areca palm houseplant 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 native Madagascar and so was renamed Dypsis lutescens.
The Areca palm indoor plant 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.
Areca 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.
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.
The Areca palm houseplant is non-toxic so although not advised should pose no harm if accidentally chewed or eaten by your furry friends.
