An audio/slideshow presentation and lecture by Dr. Nelson (and a link to his complete interactive website) has been highlighted before. You can view it HERE

Thanks for posting that. It confirmed what I'd been suspecting - a couple of my palms in the ground, esp. my spindle, seem to have boron deficiency. It had been suggested before - and this ties it.

Dypsisdean, thanks for posting the other link. I'm bookmarking both of them.


I have an unrelated pest question: have any of you dealt with Palm-Leaf Skeletonizer? I've had another outbreak of it (evidenced by the chewed, withered leaves with frass in the creases). Will Merit work, and how common a problem is this?
