Golden cane Palm, Areca Palm
As one of the world's most popular indoor plants, the Golden cane or
Areca Palm hardly needs an introduction. Outdoors, it quickly develops
into an elegant, midsized palm with densely clustering, slender, green
trunks; yellow crownshafts and leafstalks; and recurving, V-shaped leaves.
Dypsis lutescens originally comes from Madagascar, the home of so many
exciting palms, where it grows in coastal forest on sandy soils. It will
tolerate cool conditions to some extent, as well as light frosts, and
is best suited to climates ranging from subtropical to tropical.
