My Copernicia rigida finally seems to have taken off this year with our record breaking heat waves. It's actually been planted in that spot for about 10 years now from a small seedling,but has just begun producing its first few upright fronds.Its been very slow for me, (maybe too much shade) but I'm hopeful it has an accelerated growth rate from this point forward.
Just received two Pseudophoenix Sargentiis in the mail from Florida. They look great! Whats the best route to take, to get these guys in the ground as soon as possible here in Arizona? Let them adjust to the weather here and keep them in pots in a shady area. Or is the summer in Florida pretty similar to the one in Arizona, that I can just put them in the ground? Or is there another route I can take. Thank you.
It's my first summer with my Royal here in arizona and I noticed over the last few days that the second newest frond is already looking a little toasty. I water heavily three to 4 times a day and when I check the dirt, it is not dried out.
I also give it arizonas best fertlizer once a month.
Any suggestions or will it adapt over time.
Please see below, its the frond on the right :).
