Indoor Areca Palm Care Guide

Embrace the low-maintenance nature of the indoor Areca Palm with the following simple Areca Palm care instructions. This plant thrives with little attention, making it an excellent choice for novice and experienced plant enthusiasts. 

Light and Temperature

Place Areca Palms in a location with bright, indirect sunlight. To mimic its natural tropical habitat, ensure the temperature remains consistent between 65-75°F (18-24°C).

Watering and Humidity

Water sufficiently but allow the soil to dry completely between watering sessions. Occasionally mist the leaves or place a humidifier nearby to maintain humidity levels.

Soil and Repotting

Use well-draining potting soil and repot your indoor Areca Palm every 2-3 years to refresh the soil and provide ample space for root growth.

Feeding and Pruning

Feed your palm with a balanced liquid fertilizer monthly during the growing season. Prune any yellow or brown fronds regularly to maintain its vibrant appearance.

Common Issues

Watch for signs of overwatering, such as yellowing leaves or soggy soil, and adjust watering accordingly. Additionally, pests like spider mites or scale insects should be monitored and treated promptly if detected.
