Hey, I'm Dypsis lutescens but more commonly known as "Areca palm". I've been called many names over the years including butterfly palm, golden cane palm, and yellow palm. I'm a great statement plant because of my tall and attractive fronds that look like bamboo. I'm known to do wonders for your air as I'm good at removing all the toxins to help purify your space.
I come in a 24cm pot and I'm 125cm tall.
I like indirect light and partial shade. I love it when you remove my dead fronds as it encourages my trunk to grow.
I don't like my soil getting too wet. Let me dry out in between watering's please.
LOOKING AFTER ME
Water me when my soil has become slightly dry at the top. I'm easy going when in comes to temperatures. I'll survive in anything from -5 to 37°C. I don't mind a little mist every now and then in the summer to cool me down.
LIVING WITH PETS AND CHILDREN
I’m non-toxic so you don't have to worry about me around your pets and children :)
