Couldn't fault their service or plant quality. I live in Northern Ireland and it is extremely difficult at the moment to have a plant delivered it came in good time and plant was in excellent condition will use them again. I got a few peace lilies for an addition to my aquarium set up and doing great! Thanks

I ordered a Monstera a great specimen arrived a few days later. I am very happy with it. Only problem is the package was a bit tight and some leaves were damaged but I guess this is inevitable.

Had a really good experience, my delivery was a bit delayed due to waiting for stock of Bird of Paradise which didn’t time well for me going away. On contacting the team John was very responsive and accommodating with arranging delivery for when I was back instead. Plants were packaged very well, arrived in perfect condition and all super healthy. Would recommend Oxy Plants and would purchase from them again in the future!

I ordered the 3 plant bundle. John contacted me as there was an issue getting hold of the blue pots so I chose a different colour. Plants arrived promptly, although one had a damaged pot. John sent a replacement along with a bag of compost so I could repot it. Great communication, good value. Highly recommended.

How To Care For Areca Palm

Getting your watering routine right is paramount in the care of your Areca Palm. Aim to keep the soil moist, but not soggy. If your Areca is allowed to sit in water this can lead to root-rot and ultimately the death of your Palm.

Allow the soil to dry a little more between watering in winter. If possible, use distilled water – especially if you live in an area with hard water as the chemicals in the water can be damaging to Arecas.

Find a bright, indirect spot in your home which is warm and away from any cold drafts. Arecas are more shade tolerant than other indoor plants, but still want a brighter spot if possible to keep them in optimum health.

Areca Palms do prefer a slightly humid atmosphere, so will benefit from a misting every now and again. Consider purchasing a water mister to keep your palm happy year-round.

Areca Palms want organically rich, loose, free-draining compost. You can add perlite, bark or sand to help allow the water to drain away freely. It is also ideal if you can add stones to the bottom of your pot so the roots are never sat directly in water, which has drained away.

The Areca palm will need fertilising in spring/early fall but you won’t need to bother during late fall/winter as the palm is dormant during this time. Choose a houseplant fertiliser to suit your needs.

If using fertiliser is new to you, read our “How to Fertilise Your Houseplant” page!

Indoor Areca palms can occasionally be vulnerable to common houseplant pests which cause foliage damage and discolouration so treat any infestation as soon as possible with an insecticide.

If you think your plant is suffering from a pest or disease, take a look at our Pests and Infections page!

Repot your Areca every other year to freshen the soil and remove any fertiliser salt deposits that have built up in the container.

Wondering how to repot your houseplant? Take a look at our repotting guide. It has all the information you’ll need!

About Areca Palm

Areca Palm, is one of our most popular houseplants and it’s easy to see why! This leafy palm can be grown anywhere indoors in indirect sunlight and in a warm room. The imposing foliage of the Areca captures air impurities and converts them into oxygen – purifying the air as well as adding beauty and charm to every room it resides in.

The Areca Palm guarantees a tropical atmosphere and a refreshing feeling and is sometimes referred to as a Bamboo Palm or Butterfly Palm. If you’re looking for a large indoor plant to breathe life into your home, the Areca Palm is one of the best choices. An easy-care plant, which easily transforms a room with its plumes of green foliage. It transports really well in the post and is a great surprise present for a friend or family member.

Top tips for caring for your Areca Palm:

  • Keep in a warm, brightly lit room
  • Mist the leaves regularly to prevent the leaves from drying
  • Water when the top layer of soil appears dry
  • Keep away from cold draughts during winter
