The Areca palm is a classic, having first found favour with the Victorians, it's never really gone out of fashion since. It's easy to distinguish because it has beautiful feathery foliage and its stems go from a light grey to deep red-brown colour. They look great in baskets but need to be raised up, as much as possible, to show the stems off to their full potential. Areca palms are relatively easy to care for but, as with all palms, they need consistent watering. Because its leaves are rather delicate this one in will react particularly quickly to either under or overwatering Ã¢ you'll start to see the tips of the leaves browning. Once this has happened they're not going to turn green again so keep on an eye on this one in order to keep it in peak condition.
