It is characterized by its slender, smooth, yellow-green stems that can reach heights of up to 20 feet (6 meters). The fronds, which can grow up to 8 feet(2.4 meters) long are pinnate and gracefully arching, creating a lush, feathery canopy.

Care Tips for Chrysalidocarpus lutescene( Areca Palm):
Chrysalidocarpus lutescene prefers bright, indirect light. Place it near a north or east-facing window to ensure it receives the right amount of light. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of the soil feels dry. Use well-draining potting mix to prevent root rot. A mixture of peat, perlite and sand works well. Maintain a temperature range between 65-75’F. Protect the plant from cold drafts and sudden temperature fluctuations.
Feed the plant with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer) every 4-6 weeks. Trim brown or yellowing fronds to maintain the plant’s appearance. Be cautious not to cut too much as it can harm the palm. Keep an eye out for common pests like spider mites and scale insects. Regularly inspect the plant and treat any infestations promptly.
