Dypsis decaryi or the much easier to say Triangle palm gets its name due to the way the leaves are grown almost upright from the trunk and arching gracefully outward. The leaf bases are arranged in three vertical columns set approximately 120 degrees apart on the main stem, forming a triangular shape.
The Triangle palm originated in Madagascar. Madagascar is home to several interesting and unique palms that grow in the open plains. The Triangle palm is just one more such palm.
The Dypsis decaryi makes a gorgeous specimen tree or accent tree for display to show its unique shape.
The Triangle palm can be grown outdoors or indoors it will grow up to 20 feet tall and 15 feet wide.
Not known to be one of the most cold tolerant palms the Triangle palm does not do well in temperatures under freezing. If exposed to cold temperatures it should be kept as dry as possible. This particular palm is a little different than most as it does not require as much water. Over watering and poor drainage is more of a hazard to the Triangle palm then drought. This palm does well in sandy soil and tends to do poorly in clay like soil. Dypsis decaryi prefers full sun but can grow in light shade.
The Triangle palm is easy to maintain as they are a self cleaning palm that should be fertilized twice a year with a slow release fertilizer as it can be susceptible to potassium deficiency. The Triangle Palm can be sensitive to transplanting so make sure you have done your homework on this one and you are dealing with a grower whom takes proper care of their palms.
