Trachy petioles not extending out from crown
I have a 7' trachy fortunei that I planted in March this year. It was Balled and burlapped. The pal petioles do not seem to extend out of the crown area. it has about 4 that are not extended but bunched around the crown. Will it grow out of this or is there any thing I can do to help it. It has been watered well and new spears are coming in. It has also had osmocote & Epson salt.
Trachycarpus in DC
Wanted to share the below pic. I was in DC two weeks ago, right after that brutally cold week we had in the Northeast. I saw this house in the DuPont area with two fine looking Trachy palms. Looking good!
What temp to bring indoors potted Trachycarpus fortunei
For a potted Trachy in a large plastic 28" pot (double wall with 1" air pocket), around 1.5 feet of trunk what temp would you bring it indoors to prevent roots from damage?
Seed grown Palm collection
A few pictures of some of my current Palm collection. Very pleased with the growth. For the most part they have been slow to start but now some are getting bigger they are putting on faster growth
Pretty Little Things
By JT in Japan
I got these seeds from Gary in May 2013, and they were unknowns (not part of my order). Gary guessed some time ago that they might be Trachy Tesan. Any guesses if he is right? One of them (4th pic) is certainly different from other two (slender leaves, faster to pinnate...). They're almost 3 years from germinating now, so not really fast, but they sure are pretty at this stage.
