Aretha the Areca Palm, XL

Pet Friendly | Infrequent Watering | Bright Light

Aretha is a natural beauty with stunning tall fronds that seem to burst like fireworks out of yellow, cane-like stems.

These palms are quite low maintenance. Place yours near a window - an east-facing one would be ideal to take advantage of the bright and soft morning light; water every 1-2 weeks or when the top half of the soil has dried out, and you're done.

Also known as Areca lutescens, Chrysalidocarpus lutescens, Dypsis lutescens, Butterfly Palm, Yellow Palm, Golden Cane.


Difficulty Easy - low maintenance.

Water Check every 7-10 days and water when the top 50% of the soil is dry. Use distilled, rain, or filtered water to avoid brown tips.

Light Bright, indirect light. Prolonged exposure (2+ hours per day) to direct sunlight can burn fronds. Not suitable for low light areas.



· A healthy plant from a local nursery.

· Potted in premium soil in a plastic grow pot for easy watering.

· Decorative pots sold separately here. Pictured with the Tobago Black Pot in XL.


· Plant height: Approx. 50" - 60"

· Nursery pot: 10" x 10"
