If you are wondering what Areca Palm is, here are some more details to help you understand:
The Areca Palm (Dypsis lutescens), also known as the yellow butterfly palm, golden cane palm, and feather palm, is a common plant in South Florida. If you are looking for the easiest palm tree to grow indoors, you can't go wrong with the Arecas.Cultivation of Arecas within nurseries has been rapidly increasing in a bid to meet the palm tree's growing landscaping demands. This fairly disease-free palm tree is one of the 10 best air purifying plants, according to a NASA study. With its long, beautiful feather-shaped fronds, Areca Palm will add a tropical aura to your space. It is ideal for screened patios and atriums.
Arecas provide unrivaled beauty.

Areca palms thrive in zone 10 and up. They are largely found on the border of zone 9b and 10. In the case of zone 9b, however, this palm tree will thrive in protected areas, especially near the water. You know why?


Water bodies such as lakes and rivers are effective in regulating air temperature. Arecas prefer a temperature of 75 to 85 degrees during the day and between 65 and 70 degrees at night. When a freeze enters a boarding zone, your palm tree will do better near the water.

It's also worth noting that Areca Palms bear edible fruits. The fruit may not make you full, but it can serve as a simple snack. The Areca palm hedge is popular in Florida. While it's full and bushy, you can thin it out to expose the canes that coincidently resemble the culms of non-invasive clumping bamboo.

You should realize that you can't prune an Areca Palm to reduce its height. Otherwise, you may damage or kill your palm tree.
This is because new growth emerges from a central growing point the palm tree's trunk top. So, if an indoor Areca Palm grows too tall, you can only transfer it outdoors or to a place with a higher ceiling.

The Arecas can grow up to 30 feet outdoors. Their canes are smooth graceful silver/green color. Their feathery fonds feature a beautiful arch. The fonds are the reason the Areca is also called the Feather Palm.
