Hello, I have picked up a 5 fallen fruits of a Christmas palm tree 2 weeks ago, removed all of the husk and submerged them into water for around 5 days after which the flat ends of the seeds started germinating. https://m.imgur.com/Hrjr4Zj
I have transferred the seeds to soil in a shallow container with good drainage a week ago just so it can continue to sprout as I have noticed no changes after a day in the water.https://m.imgur.com/mlpz8Eq
Would this setup be sufficient for the first month or so or would I need a deeper container? If this wouldn’t work I have a pot around 3.5 inches tall and 4.5 inches wide. https://imgur.com/a/L5AssAq
Can I transfer them all there? Or maybe at least 1 or 2 of them. The only reason I have 5 right now is for backup in two or more failed to germinate. I don’t worry so much about the temperature and humidity as I live in its native range anyway so that wouldn’t be a problem.
I have a 70’ palm tree with mostly smooth trunk. I want to wrap the trunk in mesh electric lights all the way up but all the lights I see available on-line have lousy reviews, such as not lasting very long or ugly in the daylight.
Anyone have a recommendation? My tree is being pruned next week and the bucket truck guy can put them up for me.
I want to share with you my potted Nannorrhops, one of the oldest palms that I have. It is an extremely slow species, but to be fair, it didn't have the optimal conditions all the time and I neglected it a bit for quite some time. This one is 7 years old and despite having still undivided leaves, it has some suckers already (if it is right to call them suckers). Here are some visuals, enjoy!
A few years ago, I germinated seeds of Roystonea Regia that currently measure about 1 meter tall. I have them in a semi-shade place (2 hours of direct sun). This is one of them.
As we all know, these are plants for full sun, but when they were little I wanted to protect them from the direct sun until they will become stronger.
I'm in 9b area (Valencia-Spain), so my idea is to grow in a pot (to move and protect in hot areas during winter) until they start to make trunk and then pass them to the ground as they will be stronger to resist the winters here (rarely below 28ºF ).
My question is: With this size it would be convenient to start giving them more sun (now they have 2 hours of direct sun) ?. I have several areas in the garden where I can take the pots from the current 2 hours of sun, up to 4 hours, 6 hours or sun all day.
I am afraid that they are too small even for the full sun and they burn, but on the other hand I do not know if with this size they start to need more sun.
Maybe I have to wait for the pinnate leaves for more hours of sunshine?
Hi guys, I wonder if you could help me about some worries and questions I have about certain palms I own.
First, I've a butyagrus, a JxB F2 and a Livistona nitida which their newest leaf are very yellowish. I wonder If it's normal or it's caused by some short of defficency (iron perhaps?) or overfertilizing them (I use Palm Focus once a week or every 15 days and I always give them the amount recomended (5ml per litre). I leave you some pics about them. The 3 first ones are the butyagrus, the next 3 are from my JxB F2 and the last 2 are the L. nitida.
The second question is about my Sabal uresana. is It alright? I leave some photos. Don you think is too layed? is the soil level too low?
Thank you guy in advance.
