Areca palm is one of the most widely used palms for bright interiors. It features feathery, arching fronds, each with up to 100 leaflets. They need bright, indirect light from a south- or west-facing window. The leaves turn yellowish-green in direct sunlight.
Fertilize areca palm plants with a time-release fertilizer in spring. This gives the plant most of the nutrients it needs for the entire season. The fronds benefit from a micronutrient spray in summer. You can use a liquid houseplant fertilizer that contains micronutrients for this purpose. Make sure the product is labeled as safe for foliar feedings, and dilute it according to the label instructions. Do not feed areca palm plants in fall and winter.
