Areca palm: Houseplant of the Month

Your ticket to the tropics

February's houseplant the Areca palm (Dypsis lutescens) gets its nickname of Golden Cane Palm from its golden yellow stems. This palm will make you daydream of tropical beaches, hammocks and sunshine, even when Jack Frost is blowing on the window panes. To keep it in tip-top condition, mist it with plant spray from time to time.
