Please be gentle, it’s my first request, ha, ha. So a couple of years ago I found someone with a similar problem and they were told that “the white fuzz” on the guys king palm was normal. Well, mine isn’t white close up but it looked like it from the ground. Is this white flies, or mealy bugs?? Don’t suggest soapy water my tress are tall and I need to use a sprayer to take care of this. I’m sad and scared. Thank you.
I really want to grow a single trunk King or Royal Palm here in zone 9b. Or more accurately I want a single trunk palm with a green crown shaft. I would grow it in a large container in an area with lots of sun. Winter here rarely goes below 30F. Maybe a few hours per year at most. So what's my best bet? Every King Palm I see seems to be multi-trunk? What would you guys suggest? To be honest I get confused between which is which.
The photo below is from Hawaii, I'm under no illusions I can get something like this :-)
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I love Archontophoenix palms, and I am sure many of you do too. I couldn't find an Archontophoenix specific thread, so I thought I'd make one in hopes of people showing off their Archontophoenix palms, any species! Here is my Archontophoenix cunninghamiana, which has been thriving for me indoors and outdoors (when its warm and sunny enough, like today). It's small, but is growing quickly. I am surprised at how much it seems to not care about being in cooler conditions.
This elegant, fast-growing pinnate palm is a beautiful and easy choice for beginning palm growers. Seeds germinate quickly and seedlings grow quickly. My mother palm is 20+ feet tall and straight as a column. It has withstood lows down to 28.5F with only cosmetic damage and rebounds during warmer weather. If you want experience growing palms from seeds this is the one for you.

Archontophoenix alexandrae VS Archontophoenix cunninghamiana, What's The Difference And How Do You Tell It?By PalmTreeDude
Hello, I looked up information about Archontophoenix cunninghamiana recently and I saw a lot of sites calling it the King Palm, yet, I thought Archontophoenix alexandrae was the King Palm? How do I tell these two palms apart and what's different about them? I am wanting to some day get a Archontophoenix cunninghamiana, but I'm afraid I'll get something else or a hybrid.
