Just photographed this today.
So we live in Lake Charles, La. Recently devastated by hurricane Laura. While driving around I noticed a fairly large palmetto tree in the ditch that someone removed from their property (4ft trunk). It looks like it will transplant pretty well. I have a few questions from the experts. Does anyone have experience moving these? How much would one with a 4 ft trunk weigh? Because we would probably have to pick it up by hand to get it in the bed of the truck. ( two 30ish year old guys) 2nd question. Does it look healthy? I feel like it's in perfect shape. Haha. Well any tips and advice would be greatly. I will attach a picture. Thanks!
I'm a newbie that found love for palms (especially Bismarck Noblis) during our island lockdown here in Aruba. I've read a lot of posts on here and tried germinating bismarck from seeds. Had luck with a few seeing that we have a constant 32º C weather. Made a setup of 16 inch pvc tubes and to my luck they started sprouting their first frond! Unfortunately I noticed today that the root protruded the bottom which is covered with a type of fabric.
My question is, should I transplant these and into what size pots can these roots be bended to fit pots? I know that Bizzies are very prone to root disturbance which is why some input on this would be highly appreciated.
Greetings from Aruba, One Happy Island in the Dutch Caribbean!
Last April I planted a good sized 7 or 10 gallon needle palm. This spring I would like to move it to another location for purely aesthetic reasons. I hear palms in general do not like to be transplanted. What are the chances I could damage the plant by moving it. Are there any specific things I should do when transplanting?
Does anyone know the best way to dig up my 6 foot tall trachy windmill palm and transplant it to another location? I'm here in southeast PA and the palm is 7 years old, about 6 foot trunk. Any suggestions would be great!
