Temperature & Humidity

  • This plant is sensitive to low temperatures so if you place it outside during the summer be sure to bring it in before temperatures dip below 10°C
  • High humidity is essential to keeping an Areca palm looking good


Potting and Repotting 

  • If your palm thrives, you may need to repot it every other year or so
  • Be careful not to damage the root ball or bury the palm too deep

Why not use a fancy rigid box instead of a corrugated one when shipping this product?
To begin with, our corrugated box is of excellent quality and has numerous artworks on it. Therefore, it doesn't appear any less elegant. Our goal is packaging that is as environmentally friendly as it can be. We do not like to utilise rigid boxes because they require more paper and a lot of chemicals to manufacture. There is always a more environmentally friendly choice available: corrugated.
