How to take care of your Areca Palm:
| ≈ Light:
Palm trees will not do well in dimly lit corners. Without adequate light your plant will lose all its lower fronds. Its wise to have two sets of plants which you can rotate – 5 days indoors and then 5 days outdoors. This plant is best kept in semi-sun.
Palms need to be relatively moist. In spring and summer, or when temperatures are warm and days are longer, water them as soon as their soil feels dry a little below the surface. Allow the soil to get slightly drier in winter. When potted in the planter, it's important that potting soil drains well and containers you use have functioning drain holes. Water palms thoroughly, then spill or siphon off excess water that collects in the tray or saucer below the pot. The Areca Palm is fussier about over-watering, and more prone to root rot than others. A good mixture of coco peat and soil with help grow the palm well.
≈ Keep your palm fronds clean:
