Mines in full sun, not looking good. I have to put some shaders up when temp gets too high. Everyone always recommends these palms for the desert because they can keep up with our cold but I do not recommend due to our summers.

nothing looks "good" out here now, except my barrel cactus and saguaro, but, these look pretty good, all things considered!

I've started deep soaking my newer trees at least once a week until these 115+ degree days ease up a bit...Is that too much water, or, you cant overwater when its this hot???

thanks

I leave water running all the time and move it from tree to tree I don’t think you can overwater this time of year. I have hoses running all over the jungle

Can't overwater... Imagine yourself, standing in place of that palm...no hat :crying:

 All day long in 115F temperatures,full blazing sun.

I'm deep soaking twice a week in ground, and twice a day in pots! That's what it takes to produce good looking plants for sale in the Arizona desert.:P

thanks man, I was hoping you would chime in, since I know you take fanttastic care of your stuff, and I try to do the same!

I was especially concerned with the 5 new trees I have, all less than 8 months in the ground, and didnt want to flood them out. My cactus experience always taught me "less is best", but, its a whole different world when these trees are involved. 

one quick question: if it goes back down to "normal" (103-109) high temps, do you still follow that extreme regimen?

Thanks again, and stay frosty!

How much water is considered a deep soak? Is there a ballpark amount of gallons per plant?

30 to 50 gallons of water per plant is a deep soak. If you have a standard 2 gallon per hour drip,run it for about 15 HOURS strait - not the 15 minutes the landscapers programed it to.
