How To Care For Areca Palm
Water enough to keep the soil moist in spring and summer, but let it dry a little between watering in winter.
This leafy plant likes a maximum of 3-5 hour of direct sunlight, but can be grown anywhere in the house in indirect sunlight.
Palms do prefer a slightly humid atmosphere, so may benefit from a misting every now and again, but they’re a hardy plant so don’t worry about it too much.
Indoor Areca palms work best in a peat-based potting mix.
The Areca palm will need fertilizing in spring/early fall but you won’t need to bother during late fall/winter as the palm is dormant during this time.
Indoor Arecas palms can occasionally be vulnerable to common houseplant pests which cause foliage damage and discoloration so treat any infestation as soon as possible with an insecticide.
Repot your Areca every other year to freshen the soil and remove any fertilizer salt deposits that have built up in the container.
