Function solution

Humidifies air

The areca palm humidifies air indoors and is perfect in offices or homes where the air is dry. It is sometimes called a butterfly palm due to the shape of the leaves ― and if the tops turn brown, just prune them to keep the plant well. It thrives best in a bright place indoors, and can be a bit sensitive to direct sunlight, drafts, overwatering and touching. A plant that can boost your well-being and make the room feel more vibrant and inspired!
