Any fertilizer suggestions for a semi-novice that tends to struggle with appropriate measurements?!? I worry about not using enough but then also overdoing it! Are the spikes any good? I just moved to south Florida and have really taken advantage of it with my palm collection, but am limited to having them in pots for the foreseeable future. Any (affordable and easy to find) recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
For Sale is a pot of 30+ strap leaf seedlings from my S. minor Emerald Isle Giant (NC) mother palm. These are the only seeds from her 2021 crop I managed to salvage and grow. This palm is notable for its very blue leaves on cloudy/rainy days. It grows on an island off the coast of NC where it was saved from habitat destruction.
Sabal minor Emerald Isle Giant 30+ seedlings: $25.00 for the lot
Shipping = $12.00 via Priority Mail without pots/soil and roots wrapped in damp orchid moss, clear wrap and foil. No shipping outside the US
Payment via check ONLY. I NO LONGER ACCEPT PAYPAL DUE TO IRS REGULATIONS.
Contact me via PM & I will email a quote.
thanks and regards

Sabal minor are so underrated. Everyone that can grow them should. Everyone regularly on the cold hardy section should have as many as possible. Being native to so many different states and areas there’s so much diversity in just this one Sabal species. I love growing them, but I also love seeing them. Let’s see some pics!!!
I have these Franken Brahea I’ve had in pots for several years from seed acquired from Dooms Dave, after torturing them in pots for years and hauling across country, I need to finally get them in the ground. But as seen in the below photo, the roots have grown out the bottom and circled around and around the small tray. If I trim these off will it harm it? Should I just cut the pot out from around the roots? Really looking forward to getting these things in the ground where they belong.
Pictures of Sabal minor growing in habitat at Honey Creek State Natural Area, Texas (approximate GPS coordinates: 29.859131138720375, -98.48455621328327). These were taken on January 29, 2022. There are some other specimens growing along the river at the adjacent Guadalupe River State Park; however, they are not as prevalent, or grow as large there. These Sabal minor were observed growing in three distinct environments: 1. Along the creek side and close to water; 2. Along and on top of the rocky hillside/cliffs; and 3. Out in the open in the Live Oak savanna.
