You've probably heard of Madagascar. Not the movie but the Island in East Africa, that is where Areca Palm is from. Due to climate changes, their natural habitat is lost which has made this plant an endangered species in its native land. However, the way this plant leaves grow on a thin stem and in opposite directions to each other creating a ‘V’ is absolutely stunning. Apart from being eye-catching this plant can live for 10 years or more if given proper care and in these years it can grow as tall as 10 feet. This plant has also received the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit. According to NASA Areca palms are the best air purifiers as they eliminate more than 4 types of harmful toxins present in every household.
Note: The plant comes in nursery/grow pot.
