We advise you to purchase a so-called "heat pack" for areas where it freezes in Winter. A heat pack protects your plant(s) from freezing during transit. One heat pack protects up to 4 plants in one shipping carton. (a heat pack doesn't add weight to the total order!)

For the Northern States where temperatures drop below 50°F (also & especially at night), we recommend adding a Heat Pack to your houseplant order. (November - April). This way you can be sure that your plants will arrive in good condition.

One heat pack is enough to ship up to 4 houseplants in one shipping box and releases its heat for over 72 hours of transit time.

  • Botanical Name: Dypsis lutescens
  • Common Names: Areca Palm, Butterfly Palm
  • Description: Growing an areca palm tree indoors is ideal because it grows very slowly and thrives in bright, indirect light and cramped space with its clustered palms that resemble bamboo. With origins from Madagascar and South India, this palm's natural climate is subtropic, which can be imitated indoors. Once and endangered, species the Areca palm has become one of the world's most recognizable plants.

 

Care:

  • Light: Indoor Palms can suffer from too much or too little light. Symptoms of too much direct sunlight include gray or brown-colored scorched leaves and leaves that shrivel and die. Most indoor Palms require natural bright light all year, so if you place the Palm near an east-facing or south-facing window with filtered light, it should get enough natural light.
  • Pet FriendlyYes
  • Water: Proper watering is important to the health of an indoor Palm. If a Palm doesn't get enough water, it can suffer from dried leaves and brown leaf tips and margins. Palms need to be kept moist, but you should never allow them to dry out or sit in water. You can allow the soil of the palm to dry out slightly below the surface between waterings during active growth and allow the soil to become dry out a little deeper between waterings in winter. When you do water, pour water until it comes out the drainage tray. Empty the tray immediately.
  • Humidity: Medium
  • TemperatureThe ideal temperature is between 60°-70° F during the day and about 60° F at night. In winter, the plants can withstand cooler temperature of 55° to 60° F. Palms that are kept too cool show signs of cold injury, which includes brownish-red areas on the leaves. To prevent chilling injury, keep plants in a room with a temperature above 45° F and away from drafty areas, such as near air-conditioning units, windows and doors. 
  • Difficult Level: Easy
