My cousin, Pete, brings his own Areca palm to the set of "The Indoor Garden" and gets some advice on its care. This graceful palm has been used a houseplant for decades and will live well indoors, if its special care instructions are followed! When this show was made, its botanical name was Chrysalidocarpus lutescens. Sometimes plants are reclassified and today it is also called Dypsis lutescens.
