Why We Love It

The frond-like leaves of Areca lutescens arch into graceful curves creating an eye-catching effect.

Also known as the Areca or 'Butterfly palm' it's a much-loved house plant that's easy to care for and looks elegant in any setting.

Choose a large pot if you want to encourage it to grow taller.

Originally from Madagascar this palm likes warmth and sun (but be wary of relentlessly direct sunlight) and needs minimal watering.

It loves humidity so give its long narrow leaves a quick spray with a water spritzer from time to time.

The decorative pot is sold separately.

How to Plant

Dypsis lutescens is happy in full or partial sun. Planted it in moist, well-drained loamy soil with an acidic or neutral pH.

Into a Pot

If you're planting into a pot or container, have a hand trowel and a watering tool ready, plus a container larger than the one your plant arrived in.

  1. Pour a small amount of soil at the bottom of your chosen container.
  2. Put the plant in place and then back-fill soil around the rootball.
  3. Lightly water after repotting. The soil should be just damp enough that if you press your forefinger into the soil it is moist above the top of your nail.
  4. Regularly check the soil is moist but not soaking or sitting in water.
