Indirect sunlight

Watering need

Plenty of water needed

Not too long in direct sunlight, but plenty of light. You can place the palm in front of a window on the north, or with some distance on the east and west. Place the palm about three meters from the window if it is a south-facing window. Three to five hours of direct sunlight is desirable. If the plant gets too much light, the leaves will turn yellow and the water requirement will increase. New leaves will also not grow quickly. Arecas often develop brown tips on the leaves. This also occurs in nature. With scissors you can “trim” the tips and spraying will keep the leaves looking good for longer.

Additional fertilization is recommended, but not necessary in the fall and not necessary in the winter.
