Would W. Filifera Do Well In Florida Scrub Land?
Lets say someone planted a Washingtonia filifera in scrub land somewhere in Central Florida with typical sandy soil. Would that W. filifera do well? I would think it would since the rain makes up for it not being by a pond or some other body of water and the sun would be constantly beating down on it, just like they like. Would humidity be an issue in this situation?
I wasn't joking, I got a Washy from Lowes and it is going in the ground. In the winter I will use a heat wire, thermocube, and a tarp. I will post a pic when I plant it.
Washingtonia robusta or filifera
I bought recently a washingtonia Palm. I think it's a filifera but I'm totally sure.
Here are some fotos. Do you have any idea ?
Washingtonia in Columbia SC
I was in Columbia, SC this weekend. I lived here for a few years a decade ago and decided to check on some palms around town. Here's pics of three very large Washingtonia - seemed to be doing pretty good! Each has at least 20-25' of trunk I'd guess; they're tall.
The first palm is one that Penny has sold seeds from on eBay (I bought some last year). It's near the botanical garden. The second and third pics are closer to/in downtown. The third pic also has a palmetto behind the two Washingtonia.
Palm advice please
Hi everyone, so I purchased a Washingtonia around a month ago. It was in the nursery sitting in a lot of cold water with around 20 others. They all looked quite healthy so I got one. Since putting it into the warm and dry it has pushed up 2 spears both of which are partially rotted, the first has opened but has lots of brown marks, the second is worse but it's still pushing up the spear. Question is if the spear is being pushed up and it doesn't pull out should I worry? Or just let it push them up until healthy growth recurs? I did photograph and show them to the nursery and I said it was probably due to sitting in cold water over winter (they had flooding)- they have since moved them to the dry.
