A solitary, smallish, water-loving, moderately slow growing, monoecious, forest understorey palm. Rare in cultivation, critically endangered in the wild. It has a smooth, black stem, 3 m. (10 ft.) tall, 0.8 cm. (0.3 inch) diameter with spaced ring leaf scars, and small entire un-segmented, pinnate (feather) leaves, 0.5 m. (1.6 ft.) long, 0.03 m. (0.1 ft.) wide, light green above and beneath.

This plant is suitable as a houseplant or conservatory plant.

Dypsis lutea can survive freezing temperatures to about -3.8°C (25°F), but freezing is best avoided. It naturally occurs in wet rainforest or seasonally wet forest in montane locations. In this type of natural environment temperature fluctuations are slight, and this palm prefers a constantly cool or mild climate with little temperature difference between day & night, and Summer & Winter. Under extreme freezing conditions we recommend you keep this palm as dry as possible, and well wrapped up.
