Palm 'Areca'

(Listing for Plant Only, Shop Pots and Planters)

Expansive | Full | Verdant

With its huge fronds that grow with the plant to very large sizes, this plant is wonderful for filling your home with that lush, verdant feeling!

The large, segmented leaves grow steadily upwards and outwards, each leaf growing larger and larger over time. New leaves grow in as the plant matures, filling out its canopy but remaining dedicated to growing each leaf as large as possible. 

Propagate easily by placing a cutting into water and allow to root.

Lighting: Bright indirect, no direct

Water: Keep soil evenly moist, avoiding any water buildup. Allow soil to dry slightly between waterings in the fall and winter.

Soil/Potting: Plant in a rich, organic soil in a container with a drainage hole and made of slightly porous material like ceramic. Repot annually or when plant exhibits discoloration without the presence of any mis-watering habits

Fertilize: Monthly with bacterial inoculant recomended for steady growth and to promote flowering

Temperature: Room temp, protect from harsh fluctuations in temperature particularly in the winter. Do not allow to get hot. Keep away from vents.
