Areca Palm Care
When growing outside, it’s crucial to begin an areca palm off directly at a planting site that has good drainage. Soggy soil can quickly result in root rot on hands. Concerning frequent care strategy to water your areca palm if the ground begins to dry out. This is particularly important for outside palms in warm weather to keep them healthy. Additionally, indoor palms frequently don’t have enough light unless you’ve got a very bright window. Therefore it may benefit your hands to bring it outside in hot weather to be subjected to the diffused sun.
Feed both indoor and outside palms during the growing season. These palms do not require much in the means of pruning. Wait to eliminate any dying fronds till they are largely brownish, as they can play a part in photosynthesis.
Outdoors, these crops such as bright filtered sunshine, but they can also withstand whole sunlight. They need to have protection against the strong day sunlight, as too intense of light may scorch the foliage. Inside, areca palms do best using glowing light exposure in the south- or – west-facing window.
For potted plants that are potted, a well-draining, peat-based potting mix is ideal. External specimens do best with a wealthy, somewhat acidic soil that has very good drainage. Amending with sand and peat moss may be essential to boost porousness and reduce the pH of their ground.
Like most palms, areca palms such as moist soil, but they’re sensitive to overwatering and cannot tolerate being waterlogged or sitting at a water-saturated potting mixture. Thus allow the dirt or potting mix to dry out slightly between waterings. Areca palms are also sensitive to fluoridated water, therefore use distilled water or accumulated rainwater
The areca palm is a heavy feeder and needs pruning out of spring into early fall using a liquid fertilizer, following label directions. Don’t feed through the late autumn and winter once the plant is dormant. Sansargreen Suggested Fertilizer for this plant Cocopeat Powder and DAP Fertiliser both help to grow this plant.
- Temperature and Humidity
Inside or outside, this plant does best in ordinary temperatures of 65 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s going to do nice planted in the backyard in areas where outside temperatures do not dip below about 50 degrees Fahrenheit. And should you put potted plants out during the summer, make sure you bring them before temperatures dip below 50 degrees. Sudden cold pops may cause dark spots on the leaves. What’s more, higher humidity is vital to maintaining an areca palm looking its finest. The plant will clot into ordinary indoor humidity. But when the atmosphere is too dry, then it’s typical for the foliage tips to turn brown.
- Common Pests/Diseases
Areca palms do not have severe problems with diseases or pests. Sometimes a palm will develop lethal yellowing, an insect-transmitted bacterial infection that leads to fronds and finally the entire hands to perish. External palms are usually those affected with this, also since therapy generally is not effective it is typically better to take out the palm until the disease could spread. Indoor areca palms are vulnerable to ordinary houseplant pests, such as bugs, aphids, mealybugs, scale, and whiteflies, which may lead to foliage discolouration and damage. Heal any infestation whenever you can, ideally using a natural insecticide.
