Livistona Rigida + Kentiopsis Oliviformis: How well do they transplant?

Recommended Posts

Sandy Loam

I have a Livistona Rigida and a Kentiopsis Oliviformis that need to be transplanted to a different location, but I need to know whether these are especially root-sensitive palms that will just die if moved.  The Livistona Rigida was planted about five years ago, whereas the Kentiopsis Oliviformis might be about two years in the ground.  In other words, neither will be keen on being transplanted.

I look forward to your answers and experiences. Thanks!

I transplanted my L. rigida last spring, and it took until November to start growing again. I've read on this forum that they resent transplanting. I would at least wait for warmer weather first.

I moved a couple of K. oliviformis in my California garden and they were unfazed by it. Shouldn’t be a problem at all as long as you get a good rootball.
