What other plant parents say
I love this plant but it does seem to have gnats flying around it. Watered once a week without overwatering. It’s a pretty green color and has put out a new leaf since I got it two months ago.
Too much sun... brown leaves, too little... brown leaves... something in between... survives. I don’t know not sure what to do to keep him out of the perpetual process of dying
Looks great when you get the water/sunlight balance right but very easily browned leaves. Hard to keep green
Hard as nails, didn’t water for 3 months at one point and still managed to firm it, what a trooper
Love this plant it’s so green and really ties my whole decor together
Pet friendly, easy care. Sturdy plant. Lush long leaves.
The key is to not over water it!!
Needs a lot of humidity!
Esthetics are medium
How to care for Areca Palm
Areca Palm needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Areca Palm may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Select your city to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Areca Palm in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Areca Palm after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
