Golden Cane Palm – Dypsis lutescens Soil & Drainage

Growing Golden cane palms as a houseplant, although not particularly fussy and it will do ok in a general or premium potting mix, it will fully thrive in a peat-based and slightly acidic soil with pH levels between 6.2-7.0. Make sure the soil is well-drained since the roots of the tree are prone to root rot in wet or waterlogged soil.

Golden Cane Palm - Dypsis lutescens Watering

Keep the soil evenly moist, but not soggy. Water the soil thoroughly and wait for the water drain through. Let the top of the soil slightly dry between watering is ideal. Allow the top 2 inches of the soil to dry out completely between watering and cut back on watering during fall and winter. Bottom watering can also be a good option, especially when starting out to see the rate at which it drinks. Water more heavily and frequently during the hotter months to encourage good growth.

Golden cane palm is a low-maintenance plant that can grow to about 10 feet. It can be a slow grower, so you won’t need to be extra vigilant for any wayward fronds or worry about the palm growing out of control. Occasionally, you’ll need to remove dead leaves or a damaged one. Other than that, the palm maintains its natural shape without much help from your pruning shear.


Golden Cane Palm - Dypsis lutescens Toxicity

The most common issue is leaf tip burn, it’s a sign that the plant is stressed due to overwatering, a drop in temperature or dry soil. Adjusting your watering patterns and ensuring the temperature doesn’t drop to 12 C will fix the problem. Overwatering can also cause a fungal infection called pink rot. The crown of the palm gets covered in pink growths that contain the spores of the fungus. You’ll need to remove any infected fronds and repot the palm. Mealybugs is another common pest that enjoys the dozens of Golden Cane trunks and fronds which offer an abundant number of hiding places.

With their iconic yellow trunks, Golden Cane Palms can look great in darker pots like charcoal or metal grey, but can also look striking in black or a complimentary colour like dark blue. Terracotta Pots can work well complimenting their green foliage and white is a safe option that looks great with most plants. Plants like Persian Shield with their metallic purple can be a good accompanying plant that pops off the yellow background. Golden Canes are also great for growing in a trough formation to create a dense tropical screen to separate spaces such as in offices or restaurant waiting areas.


Golden Cane Palm – Dypsis lutescens Propagation

The Golden cane palm keeps forming clumps as it grows, so the best way to propagate is undoubtedly by gently dividing the plant when repotting.
