Areca Palm Care Guide

LIGHTING FOR YOUR ARECA PALM

This Areca Palm likes a sunny spot. She will be happy in front of a south/west facing window. If Ariel gets too much sun her leaves will start to turn a yellow/brown colour. She is happiest with bright but indirect sunlight

 

WATERING YOUR ARECA PALM

In the summer from March to September, we recommend watering twice a week. Watering Wednesday and Soak Sunday. To make sure you're not overwatering put your finger into the top of the soil, if the soil is wet do not water, if the soil is dry, it's time to water.

In the winter from October to February reduce watering to once or twice a month. Let this Palm almost completely dry out before watering in the winter. Houseplant watering guide

 

HUMIDITY FOR YOUR ARECA PALM

Areca Palms will tolerate normal room humidity but will thrive in humid places. 

 

WHAT FERTILISER SHOULD I USE FOR MY ARECA PALM

Fertiliser isn't a necessity but, once every two months in the summer wouldn't go a miss.

 

REPOTTING YOUR ARECA PALM

Every few years you’ll need to repot this Palm. The roots prefer a tight container but when they’re too crowded, it will limit the size of the plant. For soil, we recommend a good draining soil.
