The Areca Palm, also known as Dypsis lutescens or Butterfly Palm, is an elegant palm with a dense cluster of pale green fronds, which have a characteristic golden colour to the stems (petioles) – the intensity of the colour depends on light levels. The Areca Palm fronds grow at a sharp angle (approx. 40 degrees) from the base of the plant, and its trunk when that forms, resembling butterfly wings.
This palm is a clustering type, with multiple stems that will eventually form proper trunks, although as indoor plants they tend to keep to their juvenile form. All our potted plants come in compostable coir pots.
