The Golden Cane Palm (areca palm) is most likely the most widely sold palm in the world. Where climate allows growing this graceful and majestic palm outside it is extensively planted used as a landscape specimen.
The rest of us can enjoy its arching, feathey leaves in the house, conservatory or greenhouse.
A position in bright light to full sun will suit this beautiful palm best, bringing out the colour of the trunks and leaf bases. Other than that regular watering, feeding, and a moist buoyant atmosphere will help prevent Dypsis lutescens from getting leaf-tip drying and red spider mites.

Return policy applies only to plants that are in their original pots.
Due to the nature of the consignments, the courier's drivers are not insured to carry goods through your property.

Vouchers and small boxes can be posted through the letterbox, provided there is unrestricted access to it.
Palm trees are one of the most popular choices for indoor plants to grow. They provide the majestic beauty of a tropical garden and the ease of care. The less mature palms can be used as a desk plant for a small office and even in bathrooms of some homes.
An inevitable problem encountered by growing palms indoors is the amount of dust that builds up on the leaves over time.
The soil in the pots should be kept moist and never be allowed to dry out. During the summer months you will be watering as much as twice per week to maintain moisture levels, whereas in winter you should water sparingly.

Received well packaged & wrapped, no bent stems, now placed near window in living room and looks stunning. Very pleased so far.
Wow! Looks amazing!
Buying a plant unseen, particularly when it has to be delivered by a courier, can be risky, but not so with the two palms we bought from The Palm Centre. They both looks amazingly healthy, well balanced proportion-wise and we will be ordering more soon!
A total success
A perfect purchase. Bought one Dyspis lutescens and 2 Chamaedorea elegans. All arrived in prime condition, packaging excellent. Delivery had to be delayed because of extreme cold weather. The plants were a gift and I was told that I could run the risk, if I chose to go ahead anyway, but I am glad I accepted their advice not to. These people are obviously professionals to be trusted.
<p>Plant is bushier than the pic and was damaged in transit with the pot broken. I sent an email and had no reply. Not much else to say but I wouldn't buy from them again.</p><p style="margin-left:30px;"><strong style="color:#3f48cc;">Palm Centre Reply</strong><span style="color:#3f48cc;">: <em>Dear Elisabeth, we're so sorry </em></span><span style="color:#3f48cc;text-transform:none;text-indent:0px;letter-spacing:normal;font-family:Calibri, sans-serif;font-size:14.66px;font-style:normal;font-weight:400;word-spacing:0px;float:none;display:inline !important;white-space:normal;orphans:2;widows:2;font-variant-ligatures:normal;font-variant-caps:normal;-webkit-text-stroke-width:0px;text-decoration-style:initial;text-decoration-color:initial;"><em>for missing your email.

Very pleased with my palm ! So full and healthy and packed well - would definitely buy from here again
Very pleased with my purchase. I I received a very healthy, and great looking palm. Once I had planted and positioned in the chosen room it looked fantastic. The grandchildren love it as well. The packaging and distribution is worth a mention because it arrived at the scheduled time and the Tufnell driver was very courteous and helpful.
Received my Butterfly Palm Tree (Dypsis lutescens) today and was most impressed with both the size and quality of the palm. I had ordered the larger size 160/180cm tall and it already looks so mature and established as if it has been growing in my lounge for years. It was packaged very thoroughly and arrive in perfect condition. Would certainly buy through the PalmCentre again.
I bought the smallest (7litre) plant along with two other (larger) palms to revitalise my conservatory. This one is now positioned in my green jardiniÃ¨re, looking fab and with plenty of room to grow. It is a very healthy specimen with glossy leaves and offsets the Phoenix roebelenii and Beaucarnia recurvata perfectly. I couldn't be more pleased with the quality of all three plants and the six ferns also purchased. Delivery excellent and good communication (check junk mail for confirmation).
The palm I received is really stunning, beautifully shaped and larger than I thought it would be. This is one of a total of 3 palms I ordered and I am very pleased with all three. I will be ordering more, including another of these. Delivery took only 4-5 days and the palm arrived in perfect condition.
Just had palm delivered (very fast!) and it's beautiful. Excellent service. Thank you.
<p>Can't say I was too impressed with the plant or service. When ordering I never received a confirmation email for my order or tracking details, and when it did randomly arrive it was poorly packaged and had brown tips. Not really acceptable. Proceed with caution</p><p style="margin-left:30px;"><strong style="color:#3f48cc;">The Palm Centre reply: </strong><em style="color:#3f48cc;">Hi J, we do apologize for the issues you've had with your order. The website sends automatically emails for order confirmation and despatch notification. However, sometimes, these get filtered by some free email providers as they are wrongly classified as spam. With regards to your delivery, we are working with our courier partner to constantly improve the service they provide to our customers, given the unusual shapes of our parcels. Brown tips on mature leaves are not uncommon and they do not affect the plant's survival. </em></p>

Beautiful plant, and very quick delivery! Thank you, would definitely recommend!
Fantastic quality, well packaged and fast delivery. Really can't fault the company at all. Highly recommend.
I bought a 1.9 meter butterfly palm and automatic watering pot. very pleased with both, arrived following day by courier in perfect condition. Highly Recommended !!!. I am probably going to buy another automatic watering pot as I have been looking for these for years without luck.
I bought the 60 - 80cm tall plant and it is well over a metre, plus in great condition and now a beautiful feature in my flat! Thank you very much Palm Centre.

Stunning. So happy with our purchase.
Absolutely stunning palm, best one I have ever had! I also want to thank Emma for her help with a delivery problem, excellent customer service I would rate that as 5 stars as well.
Excellent plant - extremely well packaged ensuring that it arrived in first class condition. Will certainly buy again from The Palm Centre.
A beautiful and healthy palm - best I've ever bought, plus excellent service and wrapped so well, they should go into the embalming business! This is what e-commerce companies should aspire to.
My Dypsis lutescens arrived today and it is absolutely stunning - glowing with health and in wonderful condition. I am absolutely thrilled and want to thank Emma especially at the Palm Centre for all her help with my order and organising the delivery.Vanessa Lindsay
