A small plant with widely spaced leaflets.  Dioon caputoi habitat is a very dry, inhospitable habitat in thornbush under canopy among dwarf oaks.  Regeneration in habitat is minimal to nonexistent and few plants are known in cultivation so this is a rare plant in many ways.   In cultivation Dioon caputoi grows slowly as an undemanding plant that usually suckers.
