Just wanted to get your opinion on what could be causing my canary island date palms to have dark/ burned looking spots on each rachis that has come out this summer? 

The palm seems to be very happy as it has put out quite a few new fronds, just curious.

I’m not seeing anything particularly unusual.

Question, are you watering in the crown? 

The brown on the rachis in the 1st photo might be burnt from the sun? 

Those brown 'liguels' if you may are normal in the 2nd photo.

Other than that I agree that nothing looks unusual.  I wouldn't be worried.

hi James! So sorry. I thought nobody had responded to this post. 

I actually used to wet the inside of the crown! I had stopped doing that about a month ago! Below are some more photos, if you wouldn't mind taking a look. 

Also what exactly is a liguel?

It's good you stopped. Constant moisture in the growing point will lead to problems down the road. Probably wouldn't hurt to treat the center spear and bud with peroxide

Thanks Dave! Would you recommend just pouring a little peroxide in the bud? This won't damage anything correct?

@Coasta no problem at all! Yes sir, just dump some down into the crown and listen for the fizz. You can repeat every day or every other day for a week or so or until you don't hear the peroxide reacting in the crown. It's really hard to over apply so no worries there. Your best bet is to apply early on in the day so the sun has a chance to dry the crown out before nightfall. 3% is the one you're looking for :shaka-2:

      I have been growing to canary island date palms for the last two years. 
      One of them i repotted back in May and the center sphere came out. It may have been due to watering the crown.  
      Here are photos of that one l and unfortunately it didn't survive. 
      My question is I don't want to screw it up for the second CIDP I am growing as I am growing it for my cousin. 
      When is the best time to repot it, I would hate to slow down the growth of the trunk if this pot is too small. P.s i am in Mesa az

      Hi, new member here. I just received these Canary Island date palm seeds from treeseeds.com. I wonder how long I should keep them indoors and when to plant outside. Also, what soil would be good for them? I appreciate the help!

      Hello all!! Thinking of adding another canary island date palm to my yard. 
      Would like to gather opinions on the minimum amount of space needed between the two while allowing the fronds to still look nice. 
      Thoughts would be appreciated.

      I have a mature Canary Island Date Palm that needs fertilizer badly.  The margins of the fronds are turning yellow prematurely. I finally got the right fertilizer, but I’m not sure how to apply it.  The instruction says to apply it to the area under the canopy.  But the area under canopy are mostly hedges and grass. What do I suppose to do? 
      Apply the fertilizer to the hedges and grass and hope that the wrong fertilizer won’t kill them and some will make it to the root zones of the palm??  
      Alternatively, skip the hedges and the grass, apply only to the Root Initiation Zone (RIZ) of the palm wherever possible, including the dormant aerial roots?
      I’m in South California.  The fertilizer I initially ordered was Palmgain, but it never arrived.  I went to a local store and got Palmtone (organic 4-1-5) and Epsom Salt instead to mimic Palmgain.  Since Palmtone is organic, I'm assuming it's ok to apply close to the trunk where the RIZ is.
      Any help would be greatly appreciated!
