Dypsis Lutescens, also known as golden cane palm, areca palm, yellow palm, or butterfly palm, is a glorious species of flowering plant in the family Arecaceae, native to Madagascar and naturalized in many areas including south Florida.
The Areca Palm is easily grown outside in tropical and subtropical regions. It flourishes in areas with sandy soil where water is ample and soil drainage is good. In such areas, it is most often grown in full sun but does quite well in part-day sun or filtered light. In fact, mine is greener, healthier, and much more robust in only part sun. The full sun in Florida & other hot areas is just too hot in summer.
Water regularly while letting the soil mix dry on the surface before watering again. Watering must be regular but limited, in order to not suffocate the plant's roots. watering every 2 or 3 days is usually best. But adding some sand to a potting mix for indoor plants would ensure roots stay healthy even if overwatered.
