Jubaea lower fronds yellowing help

6 posts in this topic

Hi everyone.

New to the site and love the info.... I just brought these guys up From SoCal a few weeks ago and they are going to have to stay in boxes for a few (5) months... (Will go in greenhouse when it gets to freezing temp).

They are starting to turn yellow on lower fronds. Thinking it's a water issue. Too much or not enough as they looked perfect two weeks ago.... Please help. Are these heavy waterer's or light?? Fertilizer requirements??

thank you and please help me save them and looking good til I plant them...

I don't suspect a big issue. The lower fronds are the oldest and will be the first to die off naturally. Looking at the box and size of the palm it likely had roots out of the box that were cut/broken. That's a big palm for that box. It wants the GROUND!

That was kinda my next question. Would I be better off putting in the ground now and pulling it out in 5 months for its "real" home?? Yeah bottom of box is missing and roots are heading out in all directions. It barely stands up straight without help....

Dont put it in the ground if you plan on pulling it back out and replant in 5 months. That is a very bad idea.

Set it on plywood, or burlap and wrap it. and I agree to not plant and dig up... especially over winter. As a matter of fact, it might help to cut off one or two of those lower leaves.

Jubaea done like to be super wet either. FYI.  I would guess this has to do a little with some of the roots being in the ground before you purchased which were broken  when the box was picked up.
