The well-known and extremely popular Areca palm, also known in the Netherlands as Goudpalm, originates from the humid tropics of Madagascar. In the wild, the Areca palms can grow up to 12 meters high. Fortunately, the plant stays a lot smaller in the house and usually does not grow taller than 2 meters. This plant is by far the number 1 in the list of the best air-purifying plants! The Areca filters impure particles through the leaf and turns them into building material for itself. Because of this useful property, the plant is also very popular in office environments. In addition to its practicality, the Areca is also simply a beautiful appearance with its narrow, glossy leaves.
Care of the Areca Dypsis Lutescens
The Areca is not a difficult plant to keep happy. It prefers to be in a bright place, but not in direct sunlight. It is important to give the Areca small amounts of lukewarm/warm water and occasionally feel whether the soil is still moist. This houseplant originally grows in a climate with high humidity. By regularly spraying the leaf of the palm, the Areca palm remains beautiful.
