    • COMING PALMTALK CHANGES - PLEASE READ   02/14/2017

      In the coming week (probably beginning this weekend), several major changes will be occurring with PalmTalk. The result will be short periods of complete closure, or of limited viewing (that is, no posting - but viewing still possible). These changes are major and unexpected complications are always a possibility. So, please be patient and bear with us. For those interested, the first phase will be a migration of the entire site to a new more powerful server. After this is completed, a major upgrade to the newest version of the forum software will then be attempted. It is hoped that these improvements, along with some new configurations of various parameters made possible with the new server capabilities, will result in an elimination of some error messages and glitches which have been plaguing various tasks and viewing recently. As with any upgrade there will probably be some new and/or changed features, or ways of viewing and/or using the forum. I anticipate these will be minor, and as always if there is anything confusing or needing explanation, we will set up a topic to discuss them.

One year old seedling left outside unprotected but under a roof, inside a pool enclosure.

During freeze event when outside temperatures reached 23.5°F, but subject location saw probably just below freezing, leaves started shrinking and turning dark green.

After recovery, leaves have necrotic/dead edges but 70% of the leaf area is a healthy, shiny green. Freeze events during December only.

One month after (yesterday) the spear pulled. :( Humid/brown but no signs of fungus/bacteria attack.

More tender than I thought. Other palms in pots nearby (Dypsis, etc.) didn't blink an eye.
