Why We Love It

You want elegance? You got it. It’s hard to beat the graceful curves of the Areca Palm for sheer, classic chic.

Also known as the Bamboo Palm or Butterfly Palm, it's a much-loved houseplant that's easy to care for and is a great air purifier too.

Originally from Madagascar this palm likes warmth and sun (but be wary of relentlessly direct sunlight) and likes it moist, but make sure it doesn’t sit in soggy compost.

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

Areca Palm Facts

Good for Feng Shui…

According to Feng Shui, the Areca Palm brings peace, wealth and prosperity to the house, pushing out negative energy. We could do with a bit of that!

Clean air…

In a clean air study conducted by NASA, palms (including the the Areca Palm) are one of the best air purifying plants. So take a big gulp in.

  • It likes bright, indirect light, although it can handle a slightly more shady spot
  • The Areca Palm doesn't like being cold (who does!?), and will shut up shop if the temperature falls to less than 10C
  • Pets and kids? This plant is non-toxic, so safe around pets and kids
