How Deep Should I Pot Up Palm Seedlings?

3 posts in this topic

How deep should I pot up my palm seedlings? I need to repot all of these in a better draining mix and simply because I believe they are too deeply potted now. How deep should I pot them? I was thinking about this deep (picture), the blue line represents the soil level I am thinking of potting them up at, does this seem right?

Great demo  Pal Meir!  

Palm TreeDude  that mix looks to stay too wet or your Solo cups aren't draining.   I believe you are correct to improve the drainage.  I don't think even S. minor would stand that amount of constant wetness.

    • Sabal minor Emerald Isle Giant w/seeds: any interest?
      By PalmatierMeg
      About 4-5 years ago I got this Sabal minor from Plant Delights in NC. S. minor Emerald Isle Giant is a variant of Sabal minor whose ancestors were rescued from a construction site near Emerald Isle, NC. It is notable for growing very large (up to 7' tall and 10' wide) with exceptionally blue 5' wide leaves. It is slow growing even compared to other Sabals. My mother palm is flowering and setting lots of seeds. Is there any interest for germinating and growing this palm on the forum? If so, I will clean them when ripe and post them for for sale. This is a very beautiful Sabal and quite cold hardy (see photos below). The rescued ancestors have been growing in Raleigh, NC.

    • Lights For Palms During The Winter - Does Anyone Think These Will Work?
      By PalmTreeDude
      So as the days get shorter and cooler, I eventually will not be able to keep my potted palms outside. I am wanting to get a smaller growing light for my potted palms and other plants as well, I was thinking of getting this one since it is a reasonable size. Do you think it will allow the palms to still grow throughout the winter well and get the light they need? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CJ98X5C/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_0aPVBb8YMYN3G

    • Sabal minor Spear Problem
      By PalmTreeDude
      Hello, I recently reported one of my Sabal minor seedlings, but then spear was brown when I saw it and it seemed to be buried in the soil a bit, which I did not notice. Anyway, I reported it (making sure to keep the growth point higher) and applied hydrogen peroxide to the spear, it did not fizz to much. Do you think it will be all right? 


    • VA State Cooperative Publication on Sabal minor Care
      By PalmatierMeg
      I was researching info on Sabal minor and found the following illustrated publication released by the State of VA that provides info on growing that species in the State. I thought it might be of interest to all PTers in the Middle Atlantic region and other colder areas.

    • Should I Plant It or Wait?
      By PalmTreeDude
      I keep having this mental debate with myself whether or not I should plant my Sabal minor seedling in the ground now and just throw some leaves over it in the coldest parts of winter or wait for spring. The one thing that keeps making me want to plant it now is that I am afriad that if I do not plant it now and let it go through its first winter outside that it will lose cold tolerance. Any suggestions? Would you plant it now with protection or would you wait? It is a Sabal minor 'Arkansas.'
