There is a palm for sale. The seller haven't specified what sort of palm is that.

I suppose this could be:

  • Either an Areca palm, which requires bright indirect light and should be kept moist at all times,
  • Or a Kentia palm which, quite the opposite, requires low light and should stay dry between waterings.
  • Or something else?

Given the yellow bamboo-like stems, I suppose it's an Areca palm? Is it?

My money is on Areca (dypsis lutescens).
