Anyone else successfully grow Ravenea rivularis
Anyone get their indoor Majesty palm to grow and open spears into fronds? Thing is I live at 7,000ft in Flagstaff a fairly dry mountain climate so its very dry indoors usually. It is in the kitchen which give it a little more moisture and heat from cooking. After 1 year of the original transplant from the nursery container I had used some cheap organic generic fruit fertilizer I had laying around. It's mostly bone meal and has a good amount of nitrates. At first I was thinking it had low potassium as the leaves were sort of yellow on some fronds but I checked the soil it wasn't too soggy so then I figured it just didn't get enough light and I pretty much left it there in front of the sliding glass door for a while. Nothing happened for months, the about 3 months ago one spear turned into a frond and opened up so then I fertilized it to help it out and put a mirror behind the palm it to help it gather the limited amount of sunlight I have to work with (3-4 hours a day of direct and some shaded sunlight) now three more spears popped open all at once this last week. So I used a little bit more organic fertilizer to keep things going as it contains no chemicals as you can't really over do it on the organic fertilizer.
Hi all, came home from work today and noticed my Ravenea rivularis showing some serious signs of fronds turning brown, a couple of weeks ago I noticed that the smallest of the triple planted was very soft in the trunk, now the bigger one is starting to get soft and sounding hollowish, is there something I can drench the base with or is it a goner
so this little fella is about to get pushed over thats how soft the trunk is
so its obviously the bigger trunk to the left with the brown fronds
