Areca Palm House Plants
Hello, I would be so grateful if you can offer any help or advice? I have recently bought one of the above which came in a pot with holes for drainage. However, I have now purchased a slightly larger more ornate pot which has no drainage holes at all. Can this new pot be used for my plant if I lay pea gravel at the bottom and placing the original pot within and then adding compost to compensate the size? Kind regards, Andrew

There are very specific reasons for repotting an Areca Palm, and this article will give you the reasons why as well as the "how." Hint: you'll want to remove your new Areca Palm from the original pot -- it is not needed any longer.
