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.
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!
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.
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!
