My little washie is starting to get some yellowing on it. Any idea what could be causing it? I recently moved it into a little bigger pot.
I was hoping to find a decent size Washingtonia Robusta for sale. 1-7Gallon that can be shipped bare root. Thanks!

Why Are There Palm Trees in Los Angeles? (Turn out it's an image thing.) https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/why-are-there-palm-trees-in-los-angeles
After a terrible winter, my Washingtonia robusta got beat up badly. Then at the very beginning of Spring, the spears pulled and I thought all hope was lost. But I checked it a few days ago and to my surprise I found this little bit of green. Today I inspected it more and found a new "stalk" coming up. It does not look that much like a spear, but at the top a little green frond shows. So I looked deeper with a flashlight and saw more life deeper down, but also bugs! I put some hydrogen peroxide down it (I have not done this for two weeks until now) and am hoping to kill off any pathogens that may harm it's new growth. Now, I will just have to wait and see what happens. It may end up just dying, or it may come back. In the pictures the green does not show well, but it is there and in person there is more than you can see in the pictures.
I’ll be traveling to California soon and want to take the opportunity to gather seeds of both Washingtonia Robusta and Filifera, I’m after PURESTRAIN seeds only. I know it’s difficult to get pure seeds of either species due to their coexistence causing hybridisation but I am willing to ‘go hunting’ for them. I have read that you can do tours in the California desert to collect pure seeds of Filifera, and I’m also thinking of quickly going to Mexico to get pure Robusta seeds.
Does anyone know locations I can visit where either species are so far apart (including hybrids) that hybridisation is virtually impossible and I can get pure seeds? Willing to travel far for them.
