More info

Areca catechu or betel palm is the areca palm or areca nut a species of palm which grows in much of the tropical Pacific, Asia, and parts of east Africa.
The palm is believed to have originated in either Malaysia or the Philippines.
Areca catechu is often called the betel tree because its fruit, the areca nut, is often chewed along with the betel leaf, a leaf from a vine of the Piperaceae family.

The areca palm is also used as an interior landscaping species.
It is often used in large indoor areas such as malls and hotels. It will not fruit or reach full size.

Indoors, it is a slow growing, low water, high light plant that is sensitive to spider mites and occasionally mealybugs.
The areca nut is also popular for chewing throughout some Asian countries, such as Taiwan, Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, and India and the Pacific, notably Papua New Guinea, where it is very popular.
Areca nuts in Taiwan will usually contain artificial additives such as limestone powder.

The extract of Areca catechu has been shown to have antidepressant properties in rodents, but it may be addictive.
