If patience is a virtue, then I feel I've finally won some sort of a prize!
These two D. carlsmithii were planted out from small cones back in late 2008 and honestly, I'm surprised they even survived. They have chugged along steadily, getting fatter, taller, more colorful, and finally started trunking. Actually, slow to trunk is a good thing, as it adds more time to enjoy what will become a fairly large palm. Being at eye level for such a long time gives plenty of time to admire such a special palm.....surely that's the real prize.
Just got my Dypsis carlsmithii in 45 Liter bag, thanks to Ben ( Palms for Brisbane) ( with 27 other palms )
, I want to plant it in ground and will dig in yard for it...it will be in full sun...any suggestion or consideration I should know about ?
I have read that ( I think Dypsis Decipiens) should not be plant in ground deep? I'm not sure why , is that because of its heel root type?how about Dypsis carlsmithii ? should I create mound ?
Thanks in advance, this is the picture of the Dypsis carlsmithii and where I want to plant it ...
I have seedlings of the following available;
Dypsis sp. fine leaf
