Leaves are pinnate, ie feather shaped. It is one of the top air purifying plants and a natural humidifier that will improve the air quality of your home or office as well as adding a relaxing tropical feel. Bamboo Palm is sometimes known as Dypsis lutescens or Areca lutescens.

How to care

Light: plants like bright, filtered sunlight, but they also can tolerate full sun when placed outdoors. Ideally, they should have protection from the strong afternoon sun, as too severe of light can scorch the foliage. Indoors, Bamboo palms do best with bright light exposure from a south- or west-facing window.

Water: These palms like moist soil, but they are sensitive to overwatering and cannot tolerate being waterlogged. Let the soil dry out slightly between waterings.

Temperature and Humidity: Indoors or outdoors, this plant does best in average temperatures. When grown as an indoor plant, keep the leaves away from cold windows, air conditioners, and heat sources.

Fertiliser: The Bamboo palm is a heavy feeder and requires fertilizing from spring to early fall with a liquid fertilizer, following label instructions. Do not feed during the late fall and winter when the plant is dormant.
