Care for Areca Palm

  • Choose the container twice the size of the root ball of the plant so that it will ensure sufficient space for the roots to grow. There should be drain holes at the bottom of the container. Never plant the tree deeper than it was before.
  • Areca palm can be grown in any type of soil provided it has good drainage. If the soil does not drain properly, then improve its draining capacity.
  • Areca palm requires a warm temperature for growth. Adult plants can survive in short spell of cold weather condition but young plants will not. Exposure to direct sunlight turns the leaves yellow in color. So it should be kept at a distance away from the window.
  • It requires abundant water in growing season and much less is required during winter. You can decide whether the plant needs water or not, by digging a finger into the soil. If it feels dry, then it's time to water it. Too much of watering can cause rotting of the roots. Also it is high sensitivity towards salts present in water which in turn cause dark spots on its leaf surface.
  • Water soluble palm fertilizer should be applied to the soil after a gap of two weeks during the growing season.
  • A common pest is the spider mite. If spider mite is present, try misting the plant twice daily with a soapy water mixture.

Areca palm plants look really lovely as houseplants. If we care it we will be able to maintain its healthy growth and beautiful appearance.
