Product Details

Additional information
Prune old brown foliage
Care instructions
When re-potting - take care not to disturb the plant too much and only sit it as deep as it was previously in the soil (see marks on the cane from the soil to measure the previous level). This plant prefers being pot bound to a certain degree, so re-pot every three.years
Colour of foliage
Soil type
To prevent roots from becoming water logged use a well draining aerated potting soil mix. A mixture of 1 part peat, 1 part pine bark and 1 part coarse sand
Watering instructions
Requires heavy watering; however do not allow the plant to sit in water because this could lead then to root rot. Water them often enough to keep the soil lightly moist in spring and summer, and allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings in fall and winter. The Areca Palm will wilt drastically if you allow the soil to dry out completely. This houseplant is extremely sensitive to salts and minerals, so if your home uses a water softener, water from a source that does not go through the softener first, such as an outside faucet. Like most tropical plants, an occasional misting will make your plant look and feel healthier.
