Planting Depth Question

Recommended Posts

This cute palm has been stuck in a pot so long it is even trying to bloom.

Finally I have an area selected.  However as you will see in the photos below, it looks like it is forming stilt roots.

I read nothing about stilt roots being expected for this species.

Should I bury those roots or plant it as it is growing in the pot?  Thanks so much for your help.

I'd plant it about the same depth as it is, what is the palm? Certainly looks like stilt roots as opposed to just the regular flavor.

It is Iguanura bicornis

This is normal for it I have one that is doing the same thing and it is in the ground. Plant it to the soil line and it will be fine

Just out of curiosity does it grow more significant stilt roots when it gets taller?
