|I'm dividing a small Areca Palm from a growing pot into several plantings with six columns each. How far apart should I plant them considering their ultimate growth height of 20-30 feet?

|Although it can reach a height of 20-30 feet, the canopy of Areca palm (Chrysalidocarpus Lutescens) reaches a mature width of only 8-10 feet. With this in mind, plant yours about 10' apart and they should have plenty of room to reach maturity without overcrowding.
