Whats going on trachycarpus fortunei
Hi guys, im very sad tonight
i dont know whats going on with my trachycarpus fortunei
3-4 days ago i noticed the soil dry so i put it in the bath and turn on the shower to water it... and let the water drained for 1 hours before putting it back to the leaving room..
and today i found it like this!
What could it be?
The heating in the living room?
Im very worried
i cut the leafs and left the middle ine there since its not fully out and its still solid so far
fastest growing palm
I was curious to know what all your fastest growing palms are and what conditions they are growing under.
Most of my palms are still seedlings but my fastest are Washingtonia and to my surprise, Chambeyronia macrocarpa. Currently they all grow either on windowsills or in my grow room where temperatures rarely drop below 15 celcius (59F) and on sunny days it may hit 20-22c (68-72F) in summer it will be much warmer - up to 30C/86F (indoors) My grow room has lighting most of the day and the windowsill plants just receive natural light.
Phoenix Palm roots
Just been reppoting some of my palms and as I removed some soil from the base of one of my Phoenix palms I noticed some of its roots were growing upwards.
Is this normal and why does it occur? Is it a response to wet soil?
Young Coconut palm fertilizer
Any educated opinions on weather this fertilizer is sufficient for my potted green Malayan dwarf? The soil around root ball is peat base I think ( bought from nursery) repotted with organic palm and cactus mix. Only fertilizer I could find locally that had boron listed. I'm also curious to know if it too early to fertilize while the nut is still attached. I don't know the age of the sprout but it's just under 4' tall with a 1" trunk and no split fronds yet. It's very healthy and growing like a weed. Unfortunately it's currently in low light ( bright shade with an hour or two partial direct sun) until spring.
Which palm am I, if palm I am?
A friend of mine has this beaty and we very much want to know what it is.
