Just a little something I noticed

I literally just screenshot this off of my buddy's Instagram story just now (please ignore the silly shark lol). I couldn't help but notice what looked like Washingtonias, but he is in SC near Myrtle Beach. Do Washies actually manage to get this big in Myrtle? I do see the dead trunk on the left, however...

I’ve seen taller Washingtonia in southeastern North Carolina than those in the photo. 

Washies will grow until a cold front or some other natural event kills them off.

He told me it's at Landmark Resort in Myrtle Beach. The buildings look like they provide some protection, but it's a bummer they are doomed nonetheless. I recall seeing a very sad, stunted Washy when I was in MB last year...but I also saw P canariensis that were fairly impressive. They handle the cold better I take it?

When my palm addiction first began and I started looking out for palms when I traveled south, I saw a Washingtonia robusta with a full crown and skirt that was taller than the house it was at in Southeastern North Carolina.

      One of my Washingtonia robusta seedlings leaned sideways a bit when it was in the community pot and started to grow that way. I potted it up with the base of the small trunk pointing up. Will this seedling straighten out?

      Filifera babies popping up. Seeds sown from rotten fruit beneath the afformentioned wild Nevada specimens. What a nice surprise!

      So my biggest W robusta seedling has been doing well, but recently it's leaf tips have been turning yellow. It's in a pearlite peat mix and gets light for at least 8 hours a day from grow lamps. Additionally it is on a heated mat with others. I water it when it gets dry, which is almost once a day. Maybe I'm overwatering it? Pot size? Should it go outside perhaps? Help is appreciated.

      Hey guys. For the past few months my Washingtonian adonidia have been growing quite happily. I'm just wondering if I should move them up to slightly larger pots now?

      Surprise filiferas in a canyon made an amazing sunset on our hike. Wanted to share.
