The Areca Lutcense is known as a cane type palm because of the bamboo cane looking stems once it's matured. They're also very similar to the feather types that display similar leaves and grows up to about the same height indoors.
This palm is a beautiful plant that prides itself in improving home or office décor and makes a great focal point for large rooms, hallways, reception areas and conservatories. This is a great choice if you're looking for an indoor tree type plant.
The Areca Lutcense likes a fairly bright room but no direct sunlight. Not enough light will slow growth and too much sun can burn the leaves turning them brown.
Allow the top soil to become dry between watering and do not overwater. Overwatering is the quickest way to kill an areca palm, especially if the soil does not drain too well.
This plant is non-toxic to cats and dogs.
All plants clean air borne toxins for us to breath in healthier oxygen, but palms (including the dypsis lutescens) was named as one of the best air purifying plants, after a scientific clean air study was completed by Wolverton and Nasa.
