Lota data. Keep it dry during the winter. No go in Panama City...

Moderator,

It seems like a child has hacked Andrew's account.

Allen,

Here is a write up that I have found useful on several species, it includes B. aethiopum.

Sorry, Allen. Borassus is an awesome palm--the heaviest palm in the world and a valuable palm, second only to the coconut in food value, but it will not grow in Panama City. I know of certain circumstances where it was too cold in South Florida for this palm(but many adult palms can be found in South Florida). I don't think they like prolonged cool weather either... I do know that during a cold snap, it's best to keep it on the dry side. Welcome to Palmtalk :)

Yeah, I saw a few web sites talking about 19 degrees but I didnt take into consideration that they were large trees.

Thanks for the input.

If a Borassus could take 19 degrees, then it would be pretty huge and also pretty injured by it--and it couldn't take that cold for any serious duration of time...
