Difference between two palms

Hazey_MattMarch 15, 2013

Hey everyone, Just wondered if anyone could give me a hand and let me know the difference between Dypsis lutescens and Chrysalidocarpus lutescens?
I wanted to try germinate some golden cane palm seeds and im not 100% sure which of these is a golden cane palm as ive seen them both referred to as it.
I am hoping the Chrysalidocarpus lutescens is the right one as thats the seeds i can get my hands on.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi. It's the same palm. Chrysalidocarpus is the old name.
