This houseplant is extremely popular and there’s no wonder why - it’s a beautiful, striking plant that will brighten any interior and make a great impression on your guests! 

Where does it come from?

The Areca Palm is native to the tropics of Madagascar but has been naturalized in many other areas of the world, including the Andaman Islands, the Canary Islands, and Cuba. 

Plant Care Tips: Areca Palm 

  • Light: The Areca Palm likes to be placed in bright, indirect light. Too much sunlight can scorch the foliage.
  • Water: Water when the top few centimetres of soil become dry. This may happen more frequently during the summer months. Water less often during winter. 
  • Temperature: As a tropical plant, the Areca Palm enjoys higher temperatures. Keep at 18-24°C and avoid draughts and temperatures below 10°C. 
  • Humidity: This plant prefers humid environments. For best results, keep it in your bathroom or kitchen and mist regularly. 
  • Fertilizer: Feed your plant using a liquid fertilizer every couple of months during spring and summer. No need to feed during the winter months. 
  • Propagation: Your Areca Palm can be propagated using root division. 
  • Cleaning: Wipe foliage occasionally to remove dust. 

Pets: Good news! The Areca Palm is non-toxic to pets.

Areca Palm - Common Issues and Questions 

Why does my Areca Palm have yellow leaves?

It is completely normal for the lower leaves of your Areca Palm to yellow and drop over time. However, if you find that the yellowing leaves are more widespread, this could be a sign that your plant is receiving too much sun. It may also indicate overwatering. Try adjusting your plant’s position and watering regime. 

My plant has drooping leaves. What am I doing wrong? 

Drooping, wilting leaves are a sign that your Areca Palm needs more water. Remember to water your plant when the top few centimetres of soil are dry. You can test this by dipping your finger into the soil. 

Help! My Areca Palm has dull, dry leaves! What do I do?

Dull leaves that have lost their shine are often an indication of low humidity levels. Try using a humidifier and misting regularly to provide your plant with extra moisture. If that doesn’t work, try moving it to a humid environment such as the bathroom or conservatory.

Common pests: The Areca Palm is most vulnerable to red spider mites, mealybugs, and scale. Be sure to check for pests regularly as these can seriously damage and eventually kill your plant.

Shipping and Returns

We can ship to anywhere within Canada. However, it may take longer for you to receive your products if you live in a remote region, such as the Eastern Provinces, especially as we ship from BC.

Please allow up to five business days for your plant to be delivered. If you live in one of the Eastern Provinces, this may take slightly longer, typically around seven business days.

Please also note that tax rates vary dependent on province. These too will be calculated at checkout to comply with provincial laws.

We are happy to return any defective items you may have received. Please get in touch with our customer service team at and they will be more than happy to assist!

If your item is found to be defective or damaged, you will be entitled to a full refund. In many cases, we will not require the item be delivered back to us, however, in some circumstances we may request that this it is. If this is the case, our customer service team will gladly help you through this process.

You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).
