Following Dave's advice, I've been generous with the amount of water I give beccariophoenix alfredii - and boy does this palm love it. This palm doesn't even bat an eye in full sun and endless weeks of 110 degree weather.

A few months back, I forgot to turn off my irrigation, and I left it on all night. Not too long after, my Beccariophoenix got pink rot. I splashed some daconil and Copper Fungicide in the crown, along with some Hydrogen Peroxide. There look to be a few spears that are now pushing up. I've wiped down the crown. I think that it will pull through, but it would be nice to contain the particulates near the top of the spear - or cut them out. Plant looks great otherwise. Any additional thoughts?
Beccariophoenix alfredii before & after
Since everyone loves before and after pictures, I thought the pics of my "Three Amigo" B. alfredii might prove instructive.
Here they are, planted around a big D. decipiens that later died. Picture below with The Shoe TM for idea on size. They were planted in 2009 (maybe 2010) from five gallons.

This is just a little over 6 years old from a 1 gallon 3 leaf seedling. I'm 6'2" so I'm guessing 15'. super stoked! just thought I'd post. Have a great Thanksgiving everyone.
