Plant of the Month: June 2024

Feeling the tropical vibes yet? It’s time for our Plant of the Month feature! From June, we’re celebrating the lush and elegant Areca Palm (Dypsis lutescens). Known for its feathery fronds and graceful beauty, the Areca Palm is more than just a decorative houseplant – it’s your very own slice of paradise.

It feels like we’re on a tropical getaway!


Hailing from the warm, balmy climates of Madagascar, the Areca Palm is a favorite among indoor plant enthusiasts worldwide. Its graceful, arching fronds bring a touch of the tropics into any space, making it a beloved choice for both its beauty and its air-purifying abilities.

Care Tips

Light: Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate low light conditions. Just keep it out of direct sunlight to avoid scorching those lovely leaves.

Water: Water thoroughly, allowing the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so let it dry a bit between splashes.

Humidity: Enjoys a humid environment, so occasional misting will make your Areca Palm very happy. Think of it as giving your palm a little tropical spa day.

Soil: Well-draining potting mix is ideal. This palm likes to keep its feet dry and comfy.

Beyond its low-maintenance needs, the Areca Palm is a non-toxic, pet-friendly option that adds a refreshing touch of green to any room. It’s a perfect addition to your home, bringing both beauty and cleaner air.
