Areca Chrysalidocarpus Dypsis Lutescens
Toxic to pets
This Areca palm is one of our most favorite houseplants. It may look like a Kentia palm, but they’re not the same. Its soft leaves give the Areca palm a somewhat richer name, the Golden Palm.
This nickname is also given to Areca because it tends to produce yellow-orange fruits. But don't pressure your little plant to grow fruit in the living room! They may produce fruits in the jungle, but not indoors.
Officially its full name is Areca Chrysalidocarpus Dypsis Lutescens. A mouthful, isn't it? That's why we use Areca palm, as it is easier to remember. Areca palms love the sunlight but can't stand direct sunlight. Water regularly and taking care of Areca will not be a problem at all.
