Native to the island of Madagascar, in many tropical environments this palm is commonly kept outside for its easy ornamental value. In the UK climate, it’s perfect for decorating any indoor space where it can get bright indirect light.
Dypsis lutescens goes by several common names, including Areca Palm, Golden Cane Palm and Butterfly Palm, the latter of which refers its iconic upwards curving leaves which resemble a butterfly.
Unlike Howea forsteriana, where several specimens are commonly planted together in one pot to achieve the full lush aesthetic, Dypsis lutescens’ many stems all grow from one specimen which forms clusters in the soil.
Care & Size Guidance
Younger canes emerge green and tend to not show their full golden-yellow colour until the plant matures. Positioning the Dypsis lutescens in bright light will help to bring out the colour of the trunks and leaf bases.
