Areca Palm Trees
Q.

Can You Tell Me What Kind Of Plant This Is. It’s 7 Years Old.

Zone Barnegat, NJ South Jersey | Hojolly added on November 18, 2019 | Answered

This plant was in a funeral basket for my mom. I really want to take proper care of it because it means a lot to me. I have it in the corner of my breakfast area in an east window. It’s not getting full sun only partial. Should I transplant into a pot by itself? Will it ever get full? Any info you could give me would be appreciated! Thank you

The plant with the fan-like leaves is probably a Parlor palm, Fan palm or another species of Chamaerops. The taller, upright plant is more than likely Dracaena fragrans, or the Fragrant Dracaena.

Here are some articles that will help you to care for them:
