Sometimes you can do everything wrong and they look great and do everything right and they die.Keep us posted,drayas, Hello,Unfortunately, Areca palms are difficult to replant. If you want to make things a little easier, you can use a moisture meter to measure how damp the soil is. Thanks,drayas, Kim,Areca palms prefer moderate to bright light conditions so it may not do the greatest in a dark room. The top soil appears to be "wet" for a few days when I water it. A dark color under the bark indicates the cane is probably dead and should be removed. Soil that dries between waterings; never over-water. I purchased 2 Areca Palms this past summer to decorate our Pool and Patio deck area. Houseplant FAQ Guides That trauma would cause the plant to stop growing and fungi will destroy the new cells in the crowns, quickly in cool conditions.
Do you know if there is something wrong with the palm? How often you water your palm depends on how much water you give at a time. Areca palms prefer heavy watering, so you want to keep the soil moist all of the time.I don't think the lighting killed your plant. Google that name and find out all about them.
They are salts, so burnt tips are a sign of too much salt in the root zone.
If you clip the browned tips you will stop the growth of that branch. If your Areca Palm is left to sit in waterlogged soil for long, root rot will set in. It looks like the speckling on the palm in this picture I found online, but in addition the speckles on my palms spread all the way up into where the leaves begin on some branches. I bought it from Walmart (Yeah, it was cheap there!).
However, I am starting to believe that I should water the plant more frequently (more often than once every 3 days) and the reason I say this is because the deeper I poke the soil, I notice that is dry.
Aim for bright indirect light.Please let me know how things turn out.Thanks,drayas. Good luck. It has been re-potted four times in six years. If the roots are damaged, they will break or snap when touched, just like the "canes" above.
Hello,Thank you for all of the wonderful information! Option two is to artistically cut the brown leaf tips off in a point, so that from a distance, it looks like a normal, but slightly shorter leaflet. Am I drowning this plant, starving it of light, or both??? I purchased an 8'+ Areca Palm last week and since then, some of the leaves started having a brownish tip which I presume have been progressing ever since. What sort of fungicide should I treat it with? Ive tried watering it more and daily misting it which I didnt do before but it still seems unhappy.Ive tried moving it to the bathroom where it is much lighter (the living room was quite dark) and more moist but the leaves are still drying out and browning off. Also peroxide-soaked cotton should clean it. !You don't have to do anything special with the bloom. The individual leaves of an areca palm should not be trimmed. I bought an Areca Palm last month and I'm new to caring for houseplants. It is not difficult to grow. Is that correct? All plants need a little fertilizer, particularly in the light inorganic type plant mixes, but they only really need it when they are growing, -warm weather, long days. I was watering it once a month and it was standing in a bright room with heavy sunlight in the morning. Over-fertilization is the main cause of potted plants decline and death, so small amounts are best. and also how should i ensure for long life of them?thanksshantanu, Thomasons:Each stem grows from the tip; when the tip dies, the stem will not survive long. Any advice would be appreciated. That works for all plants. Areca palms are generally not long-lived when grown indoors. My Areca Palm has developed some white coconut powdery bits on some of the branches from the root up. Most people learn fertilizing the hard way. If there is none, the stem is dead; remove that stem or cane.In fact, a distressed plant is better off with less leaf mass to support. The new shoots that come up are dead before they even open. Hi, I have a large Areca palm, I know that the tips naturally go brown.
I'm wondering if your cat is trying to tell you about a mineral or vitamin deficiency.Could it be that he/she has access to the tips, say from a table/chair, and a breeze/AC or fan blows the tips around making them an editable toy?Kerry. Denise, Denise,I use a Leaf Shine by Miracle Gro. Hi, I’m Andrew, and Smart Garden Guide is my website all about indoor gardening and houseplants.

I have 3 Arecas together around 5-6 feet tall.ThanksChris. its also a little droppy is this ok? If they can't get some air in there, they will begin to rot.The peaty soil should be OK, but last option to save house plants is always to re-pot in fresh soil that can drain.
Yes this blog is still active. It is quite common for Areca Palms to develop a few brown leaf tips and, if you have an otherwise healthy plant, then this shouldn’t detract from the look of your plant. If some roots were torn or broken, the plant won't have quite enough capacity to service the old total surface area, it did before the total root mass was reduced. I have a 5 month kitten that has chewed on the trunk & seems to be having some health problem. I can get distilled water easily. I live in Southern California, and the plants are in front of south-facing windows, where in most years they have gotten nearly daily direct sunshine.But then as of a few weeks ago, the soil began to form a strange fungus-like substance on the surface, which really caused me alarm - it looked like a hardened, off-white crust with bits of black crust over it. I was thinking about buying a palm and also perhaps putting a small bamboo on the desk near my bed and maybe placing a peace lily on my dresser. I remove it and a couple days later its back on the surface. How often and with what do you feed these palms?Thanks,Keith, Keith,I use Miracle Gro Houseplant Food (water soluable).

Thank you. Do you mean the whole stem?
I've tried spraying with soapy water, to no avail. i have an Areca palm and when i first got it the leaves had brown ends and unfortnatly i wasent suposed to but i cut the brown off. Beside fertilizer burn, very "hard" water, like in the Southwest, cause salt build-up in the root zone, normally. This will keep it straight as well as give it support.
Then after 1-2 weeks I rotate each to my living room.Kerry.
Soil insects generally aren't too harmful, and ants don't hang out in the soil. I rescued the twelve inch tall plant, and knowing nothing about how to care for it, I gave it a load of fertiliser, and have always let it stand in water.It has responded very well, and is now sixty inches tall, and seventy wide. Will they die or simply stop growing if we leave them in the same container?
any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Amit, I usually repot once every 1 to 2 years. When ripe, many are very tasty, and, as we learned in Survival School, if the birds eat them, you can too. i water them every \day.please tell me if i am doing anything wrong ? Adding Milorganite fertilizer to the soil of the Areca Palm will help to keep the plant green and help with yellowing. That tells us a lot.Tip burn is caused by salt build-up in potted plants that are not watered heavily enough to force the salts from the root zone. Try cleaning it off with a soapy water spray. Also someone else here mention brown spots on the trunk stems, I seem to have a bit of this too. Not pretty, but in the shade, with warmth, it should recover.

I bought an Areca Palm tree and after few months it started to go yeallow until it dried out completely. What am I doing wrong??? If it is fungi, it will bubble as it dissolves the fungal protein.Peroxide won't hurt the leaves, and turns to plain water, quickly.If it is bubbling, I would spray the full-strength peroxide on the under side of the leaves and wipe off the mess.Denis, how do i stop my cat from chewing on tips of the plant/. They even seem to have new leaves growing really close to those spots!
