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.
