These plants require bright but indirect sunlight. Placing the plants in front of a south or west facing window might be beneficial for the plant. If the plants are kept in front of direct sunlight, the leaves will turn yellowish-green.
In summer, watering should be done so that the soil remains moist but not soggy. In winter, the soil should be allowed to dry between watering sessions.

The areca palm seeds are quite expensive. Therefore, it is recommendable to purchase them when they are small and then plant them.

The areca palm needs to be repotted once in every 2-3 years. The old potting soil needs to be replaced to remove fertilizer salt deposits. The plants have to be planted in fresh palm potting soil mixed with a handful of sand.
