Hello everyone. A few weeks ago I posted about my landscaper possibly planting my Cuban royal a little too deep. I left it alone and last night I noticed the base of the trunk is soft when I push into it and can see small cracks. I immediately removed excess soil as you can see where the original soil line was from when the landscaper planted it. I was trying to avoid the trunk flare where it splits apart the trunk. Is this what is happening? Am I too late? Thank you for your help.

this is my first ever post and this is my first ever palm! I bought it a month and a half ago and it was lovely and green.
fast forward 6/8 weeks it’s very unhappy. Any tips on how to revive it- if I can revive it?!
i didn’t water it much as I thought it was a desert palm. (I’m U.K. based but we didn’t have much rain.) I’ve since learnt it likes moist soil so have been watering more. Is this the correct thing to do?
desperately want to save it! Also have given it slow release fertiliser to try and help. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
I was walking near south mountain in Phoenic as I often like going for long walks especially with everything being closed and such, and noticed a house with a large royal palm. I asked the owner if i could look around and he obliged and showed me around.
I'll start with the numerous Royals on the property. Here's the biggest one
Another big one, very robust and had more smaller ones planted on the left.
There were around 25 Royals planted in various spots around the property. Most were around thus size or somewhat smaller
He also had many other uncommon palms.
Hello everyone! I am new to the forum. I had a royal palm planted a few weeks ago and wanted to make sure that it was okay to plant it in a depression so the water can catch. The soil is 100 percent fast draining soil. I also want to make sure the way it was planted won't grow any Ariel roots. Thank you for your time!
