Areca Palm (Chrysalidocarpus lutescens)
Consistently rated among the best houseplants for removing all indoor air toxins tested.
When selecting an Areca palm, look for plants with larger-caliber trunks at their base. Plants with stems under an inch in diameter are difficult to maintain.
A faster-growing palm that releases moisture into the air, removes chemical toxins, and has the unique ability to move salt accumulations to selected branches (when saturated, these branches die; remove them quickly).
Keep the root ball damp.
Fertilize regulary except in winter.
Mist regularly and water frequently. This vase-shaped plant prefers a humid room and likes to be pruned regularly.
