The plant was quite small, and with the shipping price added in, it was actually about the same price as one I found that was about five feet tall and sold at a national chain garden center. The detailed "Product Description" for this plant explains that it is sold in a 2.5" pot and is about 4" to 5" in height, which is an accurate description. The leaves on mine were all green, and the plant seems to be in very healthy condition. If you want to start very, very small, this seems like a good place to purchase the plant, but if you want the best deal for your money, you can probably find cheaper and bigger options at local garden stores.

Many websites list the "Areca Palm" (Chrysalidocarpus lutescens) as the #1 "clean air plant" based on NASA studies. The plant is said to reduce toxins in the air such as xylene, benzene, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene.

Purchased 2 Areca Palms from Emeritus Nursery, gorgeous! I received them today and repotted them as shown, in my photo you can see the 4 inch plastic grower pots they arrived in, one is set in the shipping box, and the other in front of my ceramic pot, the two plants were exceptionally well packaged with the 2 plastic pots staggered in the box and _so carefully and attractively wrapped in plastic and tissue paper_ that it would not matter how they were tossed about in shipping (nor which end was up for them) -- they were destined to arrive undamaged, very impressive!

I am confident they were very healthy and well cared for before shipping because they spent the night overnight in my freezing Michigan mailbox (the one day I forget to get the mail!). There were ice crystals in the potting soil so I repotted them carefully without jostling the roots and let them set for a few hours before watering so I would not shock their roots with too much temperature change all at once. It was 3 degrees above zero this morning outside with my mailbox! we keep our home at about 68 degrees Fahrenheit. The photo shows my plants 6 hours after I opened the box and repotted them.

I also included a dollar in my photo because an earlier purchaser/reviewer had also done that. Her plant was clearly much smaller upon arrival. The Areca Palms I recieved were at least a foot and a half tall above the soil line, the shipping box is 24 inches tall with a 6 x 6 inch footprint. I don't know for certain but I expect they raised their prices in order to ship larger plants. It is the end of November so I could not find these at any local nursery, I was happy to pay what I did for what I expected would be tiny plants -- these guys get 5 stars from me and all the time it took me to write this review because my plants look awesome only 6 hours after arriving, when I opened the box some fronds were bent and folded, but 6 hours later the plants have relaxed and look very happy to me! Thank you!

Mine came very promptly, ordered it on the 24th I believe and just received it this morning on the 28th. Leaves are green, but a little bent from the packaging. From the stem to the tip my little guy comes in at 7 inches, but again its bent down a little.

Considering that none of my local nurseries had this particular plant in stock and all of the online purchases that I saw were in the high 40's this is a good buy. Take some time to grow this little guy but I'm patient.

MY plant came to me dry and most of the dirt was in the box. Plus it had nothing but a small piece of paper wrapped around the plant. I had also ordered the same plant from another seller. That plant came moist and is healthy and growing great. My other plant finally died. it was slowly dying little by little until it finally died. I did n

This plant was incredibly small when I received it. It was so small I wasn't sure just what it was!

I purchased 4 of these guys for my home and office, and have been very happy with them thus far (about 3 months in). The first thing to note is that these ARE SMALL TREES!!! YOU ARE NOT BUYING THE PICTURE! That should cost you between 50 and 75 bucks! You are getting these guys for this price because they are small and you are investing in their future.

The shipment arrived fairly quickly, (about a week and a half or so), and were wrapped in postal bags in a small container. As with most plants I have purchased on Amazon, you should have a larger pot and potting soil ready to go, as the container it comes in is already too small for it.

These guys typically grow between 6 and 7 inches a year, which means your plant will look like the picture in two to three years. If that is too long for you, suck it up and spend a lot more for an already established palm. If you have the time and dedication (dedication being a strong word here, more like ability to water every few days and repot every few years), then this purchase will be great for you!

The picture in the description is of a larger plant, but after all the reviews, there shouldn't be any surprises about what you are getting, at least not for me...for the price it was a nice starter, looking forward to watching this plant grow. I like this first one so much I bought another one for my office.

Shipping took awhile because of bad weather in the northeast and shipping to California, but the plants were in perfect condition. The product was as it was represented - 2" pots - what I'd expected as I read the "fine print". They were packaged well, green and undamaged. Kudos to Larry's Orchids!
