An elegant houseplant which also makes for an excellent air purification plant.

The areca palms popularity as an office and houseplant has increased in part because of the air cleaning experiments carried out by NASA in the 1980's.

The areca palm took first place out of the 50 plants that were tested for their ability to filter the air around us, their ease of care and their ability to add moisture to the surrounding atmosphere.

They grow at a rate of 6 to 10 inches per year and will need repotting every two to three years, although they do like a tight container.
