Areca Palm Bio
Areca Palms are admired for their exquisite narrow green leaves and smooth golden trunks, which often resemble bamboo. With tall, clumping palms, this eye-grabbing plant instantly enhances the look and feel of any space. Potted in a premium quality self-watering pot with a soft matte finish, the Areca Palm is a slow to moderate-growing plant that can reach ten feet indoors and up to 35 feet outdoors. A Madagascar native, the Areca Palm prefers bright and humid conditions, so be sure to find it a cozy spot to help it feel at home.
Light Instructions
Areca Palm grows best in a space with bright indirect light, where the sun rays are diffused, and can also adapt to spaces with medium to low light. Avoid placing it in spaces without natural light or with direct sunlight.

Areca Palm Care
During the first few days in its new home, your Areca Palm may experience some minor leaf yellowing or shedding. This is a normal part of the adjustment process and is not a cause for concern. Once acclimated, Areca Palms are relatively easy to care for and can recover quickly from minor setbacks. To help your Areca Palm grow optimally and maintain a balanced appearance, gently dust the fronds occasionally to keep them clean and allow for better photosynthesis. Rotate the pot by a ¼ turn once a month to ensure even exposure to sunlight, promoting consistent growth and vibrant green foliage.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do Areca palms like sun or shade?

Areca Palms grow best in bright, indirect light where the sun's rays are diffused. They can also adapt to spaces with medium to low light. However, direct sunlight should be avoided as excessive direct sun can scorch the leaves and harm the plant. A North or East-facing window providing bright, indirect sunlight is ideal for optimal growth​​.

Can Areca palm survive without sunlight?

Areca Palms require a certain amount of light to thrive and should not be placed in spaces without natural light. They perform best in bright, indirect light and can adapt to medium or low light conditions, but they cannot survive without any light at all. If you don't have a suitable spot with natural light, consider using a grow light to meet the plant's light needs​​.
