(3mAD) Areca guppyana is an extremely attractive Palm with huge drooping fronds, especially compared with its slender ringed green trunk with stilt roots. Bright red clusters of fruit. This is a small solitary palm to 3m tall. Fragrant light coloured flowers and attractive red fruits. Suited to pot culture. Areca products are widely used by the local people for their medicinal and narcotic values as well as for decoration. Native to the New Guinea and the Solomon Islands, this one is for the subtropics and tropics, although it does well indoors and is very dainty in a pot. Prefers shade in a protected position.
