Areca Palm

Dypsis lutescens

  • Other common names include Cane Palm, Golden Cane Palm, Yellow Palm, Butterfly Palm
  • Synonym: Chrysalidocarpus lutescens, Areca lutescens
  • Works as an effective humidifier indoors!
  • Great as tropical accents in the landscape, porch or patio!

The Areca Palm may quite possibly be the world's most popular indoor palm, for a good reason! Native to Madagascar, these natural wonders are ideal as houseplants because they can filter dry, stale air, and remove pollutants and irritants all while producing fresh, clean, and humid oxygen! They are not just used as an efficient indoor humidifier. They are also known by their botanical name, Dypsis lutescens, and their attractive stems are covered with lush, dark green leaves that bring the look of the tropics home! They offer year round color, so use them to brighten up any room in the home. Of course, they do not have to be grown in just containers. Areca Palms can grow to be a medium size palm, and when lined up along a fence line, creates a solid green privacy screen that helps to block out unwanted views in style! These beauties are ideal for creating a private retreat!

You may think that an Areca Palm is hard to keep up because they are so green and beautiful. The fact is, they are super low maintenance plants and thrive with little effort! They are heat resistant and are drought tolerant once established, with low to moderate water needs. Cane palms can grow in full sun or partial sun and are not too picky about soil either, so they are ideal for growing in our area.

  1. Gives my living room and bedroom a luxurious feel
    I've always liked live plants indoors but I've killed everything i've planted. I went to the Moon Valley by my house and the ladies and gentlemen there were so kind in assisting me to find the type of plants that would work. I was even able to choose a couple of nice pots to plant them in, and THEY PLANTED THEM FOR ME! I am so impressed with Moon Valley. My palms give me such a luxurious look in my home, and makes me feel like I live in a high end resort.
