    • 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.

From February 2012 advective freeze.

The ultimate low temp is unknown. I had a 15 gallon A. minima left outside when the forecast low was to be about 37F/2C. Cold front came through about 4am local time and dropped the temperature from about 40F to near freezing in two hours with high winds. Water in bird bath was frozen. There was no frost. The palm had no overhead protection, but it was sheltered from the NW wind by the house and the orchid shadehouse, as well as the fronds of other neaby palms of similar size. A week later there is no damage other than some minor leaf spotting on one of the more exposed fronds and some slight burn. Temperature was likely not below freezing for more than an hour or two.

I had 5 young juveniles survive 33 degrees F in the ground, unprotected, in Sarasota last winter. They didn't see any frost.
