So I have a few joannis and spiralis seedlings that are doing quite well in some one gallon pots, bit now a few have roots coming out of the bottom. Should I transplant them to a deeper pot? If so, I'd really appreciate it if someone could link me a site where I can order the deep black square pots I see many growers using on here.
Was at my grandparent’s house today and their front neighbors have a curious triple Veitchia specimen.. my guess would be V. winin
some closeups of the fruit which look different from my V. arecina/joannis at home
I have a couple juvenile palms in a large-ish (3 or 4 gallon? bottom watering reservoir) pot in my apartment. North facing window, but it's a full patio door. These guys have rarely seen full sun and have been slowly chugging away for about 7 years (since seeds were collected in 2012). Now, the largest of the 3 in this pot has started thickening around the bottom (still narrower than my wrist) and its top-most frond almost touched my 8 foot ceiling before arcing over to hang a good 6-7 feet at its highest. No changes to heat, light, water, or fertilizer in the last 3 years.
This winter it seems that the fronds are "fading". Or that they're edging into a lighter green, to an almost grayish green, but still not on the edge of yellow. I'm concerned because other than the color of the fronds, the plant looks really healthy and, as said above, the main trunk is starting to bulk up a bit. Should I be worried?
For reference, I believe this to be a Veitchia arecina, based on visual inspection of the mother tree, fruits collected and sprouted, and the look of the plant now.
Hi, was wondering if anyone had some info/knowhow re the (max?) sun tolerance of Foxtail Palms?
The dog days here are no joke w/ temps easily in the 100s (high 30s/low 40s C). A lot of the more tropical pinnates burn up/barely make it, but some of the advice (online/locally) I've come across suggests that the Foxtail's on the sturdier/more desert-friendly side of things.
Would really appreciate some corroboration (or disagreement?).
We love our palms, but I also dig seeing the other plants/lifeforms that make their homes in palms. The base of this Pigafetta at my place is home to climbing ferns and a begonia. The Vetichias' grey trunks are increasingly mossy green. Anyone else have palm epiphyte pics?
