The Golden Cane 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.

Delivery location

Due to the nature of the consignments, the courier's drivers are not insured to carry goods through your property. The standard delivery location is the border of your property or the entrance of a communal space. If other arrangements need to be made, please get in touch with us as soon as the order is placed.
Vouchers and small boxes can be posted through the letterbox, provided there is unrestricted access to it. 

GENERAL CARE

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. 

WATERING

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.

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.

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.

Palm Centre Reply: Dear Elisabeth, we're so sorry for missing your email. We believe our Customer Service Team is now in contact with you to solve the situation as fast as possible.

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 jardinière, 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).
