Botanical name - Chrysalidocarpus Areca
Origin - Madagascar
Provide me with a few hours of morning or evening sun and I will love you forever. Try and keep me away from the harsh midday heat to prevent sun scorch. If you can't read a newspaper where I am then it's too dark for me. No north facing rooms please as in winter I won't get enough light.
Please let my first few inches of soil dry in between waterings but I don't like a long drought period. Poke your finger in the soil every week or so to check. If it's very dry then its time for a drink. Water me thoroughly until the water comes out from the bottom of the pot but please don't leave me to sit in a puddle. During the colder winter months reduce watering to minimal as I will be going into my dormant phase.
Mist me or pop me near other plants to keep humidity high. This will prevent the edges of my leaves from browning.
