Areca ( Dypsis lutescens )
Height: 150/160 cm - Diameter: 24/27 cm
POT TIPS Choose a pot that is 3 or 4 cm bigger.
AT HOME Average room temperatures of 16°C - 24°C are suitable and no lower than 12°C. Sudden cold temperature drops and cold drafts can cause the leaves to display brown spots.
LIGHT Outdoors, these plants like bright, filtered sunlight, but they also can tolerate full sun. Indoors, Areca palms do best with bright light exposure from a south- or west-facing window.
WATER Like many palms, Areca palms like moist soil, but they are sensitive to overwatering and cannot tolerate being waterlogged or sitting in a water-saturated potting mix. So let the soil or potting mix dry out slightly between waterings. Areca palms also are sensitive to fluoridated water, so use distilled water or collected rainwater.
LOVE Wipe the leaves occasionally to remove dust. A quick solution is to stand your plant under a tepid shower, or even better – stand it outside in summer rain.
