For the holiday from home feel, look no further than the Areca Palm. This lush plant resembles a palm tree and its tropical vibes create your own little slice of paradise. It is also praised for its air-purifying qualities, and can bring relief to dry skin - talk about a multi-tasker!

Native to the Madagascan tropics, this plant is sometimes referred to as the Golden Feather Palm or Butterfly Palm. Sadly, it was once considered endangered due to the loss of its natural habitat.

If you can, use rain water when hydrating this plant, as it doesn't like the chemicals typically found in tap water. As for repotting, do this every two to three years - the Areca Palm likes to be cosy in a tight container.

Jo's Top Tip

If you notice the leaves turning brown, this could be an indicator of cold drafts or the air being too dry. Try moving to a warmer spot or give it a mist to add some humidity.

    In short, if anything isn't right with your order we'll sort it. 

    Your plants have not only been packaged by humans (we’d like to find a robot that could beat our packaging skills) but by our in-house team of plant lovers who have lovingly prepared your order.

    If you’re not happy with your plants, let us know within 30 days, by contacting us via live chat, email or phone and a friendly member of our team will do their absolute best to rectify anything that's gone wrong.

    It's not just the plants that we care about though, we're pretty proud of our market leading (sustainable) packaging too. We’ve created a family of transport boxes with handles and where possible use our 'anti-roll' device which prevents the plant from travelling around should the box be inadvertently tipped upside down during transit.

    Things occasionally go wrong, but we'd like to assure you we're on hand help!
