So I forgot to bring my Coconut palm in a pot in last night... The tempature got down to 34 degrees F and there was frost in the yard. Do you think it will be ok?
I would gladly give ...
The obsession to grow Coconut palms in California has always bewildered me. I have a fruiting red Matayan and a fruiting Somoan (Fiji) Dwarf Coconut Palms that I would tear out immediately and replace with Jubeas if they could survive here. The Coconut palms are nice, but are so common here. Jubea is such a massive stately palm, I envy those who can cultivate them.
White dust on Coconut Palm
I noticed some white dust accumulating in the crown of my coconut palm. I scraped some off and took a picture. It also seemed to be a little moist and smelled very sweet. Can someone tell me what it is?
Coconut palm going on it’s third year of life in California.
By Kevin S
This little coconut palm made it three years in the ground in Long beach California. I thought for sure when they planned it it it it would’ve been dead by now. Even though I’m rooting for it to live.
New Smyrna Beach, FL Coconut update
By Eric in Orlando
I was over in New Smyrna Beach earlier today so I went by to see how the Coconut fared that is growing along Flagler Ave about a block from the beach. It looks great, the cold damage isn't bad. It is still even holding coconuts. Over on the beachside tropical plants look like they fared better than in Orlando. I saw quite a few Foxtail and Christmas palms with only minor burn. The Seagrapes still have lots of green leaves and the giant banyan only partially defoliated. I forgot to go south on A1A and see how the tall coconuts at that beachfront house did.
