Houseplant & Indoor Plant Care

Areca Palm Care Guide

Your Palm will be happiest with an evenly moist soil, allowing excess water to drain away. They cope well in both low light and brightly lit spaces, but will get sunburnt if positioned in direct sunlight. Whilst you can prune any little sunburnt bits that discolour, they wont return to their original luscious green.

Learn More About Areca Palm

Collapsible content

What is the Areca Palm Known For?

The Areca Palm, botanically known as Dypsis Lutescens Chrysalidocarpus, is a versatile and attractive houseplant. Its graceful, arching fronds and dense foliage create a lush, tropical atmosphere. Additionally, the Areca Palm is celebrated for its air-purifying qualities, making it both a decorative and functional choice for homes and offices.

What Is the History of the Areca Palm?

The Areca Palm has a rich history that can be traced back to Madagascar, from where it spread to other parts of the world, including South Asia and the Americas. Over the years, it has gained prominence as both an ornamental plant and for its supposed air-purifying properties. The Areca Palm has also been traditionally used in various cultures for medicinal and ritualistic purposes.

Where Does the Areca Palm Originate?

The Areca Palm is originally native to Madagascar. It thrives in warm, humid conditions, and it has adapted well to a variety of environments, from tropical to temperate. Its versatility has led to its widespread cultivation in various parts of the world, both as an outdoor plant in tropical climates and as an indoor plant elsewhere.

How Do You Care for a Areca Palm?

Caring for an Areca Palm is relatively straightforward. Position the plant in a bright area with indirect sunlight, as direct sunlight can scorch the leaves. Water moderately, allowing the top inch of soil to dry out between watering sessions. To maintain its lush appearance, mist the leaves occasionally, and feed it with a balanced liquid fertiliser every six to eight weeks during the growing season.

Are Areca Palm Toxic to Pets?

Yes, the Areca Palm is generally considered safe for both cats and dogs. It's non-toxic and poses minimal risk to pets. However, as a precautionary measure, it's advisable to keep any houseplant away from pets that might chew or ingest plant material, as this could potentially cause minor gastrointestinal discomfort.

    Order shipped same day and received the day after! Excellent. However, whilst 2 of my 3 plants were great, one was a bit limp and had leaves cut off at end. I emailed to raise this with them but to date, have had no reply.

    Was so pleased with my plants from this company. They were in very good condition and packed very well to minimise breakage. I received the wrong plant in error and after emailing them , they were very quick to respond. Not only did they allow me to keep the plant sent in error, but sent the correct one straight away. Great communication! I would definately buy from this company again.

    Excellent service

    Excellent service. Very quick delivery of a plant I couldn't find in stock in many other places. Came incredibly well packaged so not damaged at all and plant recovered very fast when removed from packaging. Beautiful large plant I'm so pleased with it. I didn't know what to expect at first ordering a plant online as never done this before but so glad I did as its better quality than half the nurseries around here and for a great price. Will be ordering again.

    Quick and great condition

    Plants arrived very quickly, and in great condition. There were a just couple of minor tears in the leaves, but the plants were well packed and this is to be expected at least a little in delivery and handling. Great pricing, will order from Houseplant again.

    After our cat had to go to a foster home while we were in a temporary place that didn't allow cats, his foster carer had an Areca Palm that he loved. As a welcome home present, we bought one to help him settle in. We love it as much as he does. The plant came well-packaged and with the pot we bought for it in the same box and packed in a way to protect both the pot and the plant, it arrived safely and very fast delivery. Thank you, as this plant has made our home more homely for us all.

    Terrrible delivery service!…

    2 stars from me because they use the delivery company DX. Read the reviews here your self about DX, they're notoriously unreliable and impossible to contact. I recently ordered a small house plant and it's been delivered to Glasgow (I live in Edinburgh). Despite DX making the mistake it's apparently up to me to sort out the issue and reschedule delivery (2 days later than it should have been). God knows what state my poor plant will be in when it's finally delivered (if at all!)! I will never order anything again from Houseplants UK while they continue to use DX for their deliveries. Be warned!

    Ordered a couple of houseplants, one arrived looking a bit distressed. Upon contacting the vendor with my concerns, I was given advice on how to help the plant recover and a new plant was sent in addition. Really gratefull for the vendor's help and expert advise. The new plant was a fabulous gesture and very much appreciated. Both plants are now looking great!

    I am very pleased with my first order. They were delivered quickly and were so healthy. I was a little surprised the plants were packaged in such a narrow tall box, but they were so well packed and prepared that no damage could have occurred. The plants are a little pricey compared to other retailers, but I have not seen such healthy plants anywhere I shop. I will definitely order from them again.
