Minimum space between two CIDP's

Recommended Posts

Coasta

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. :)

They get huge where I am, at least 10 ft apart if not more, my recommendation. That said, they can grow right next to each other and thrive.

For CIDP here on Iberian Peninsula the"typical" minimal amount of space is the length of two car park places:D.

If you have room for another "huge" palm,why not consider a Jubaea,Sabal,Bismarckia,Borassus or Copernicia? A rarer palm will always be the conversation piece in your collection.

I agree with Scott, you have lots of choices in Mesa, dont choose based on what is in a nursery right now.  Beccariophoenix alfredii, bismarckia, and some others might ofrfer some POP to your yard that a second CIDP wont.

Thanks guys for the response. The reason I was thinking about a canary island is that I really do like those palms when trimmed nicely. I had thought about a bismarckia previously and its still a possibility.  I just googled a copernicia and those look really nice, how hard are those to maintain here in arizona, and what variety is the best for our climate. 

I would need something that can take full western sun without getting toasted. 

I also know I want to plant a mule palm when I do the yard.

For Copernicias,I am growing alba,baileyana,berteroana,cowellii,fallaensis,gigas,glabrecens,macroglossa,rigida and yarey. Needless to say,they are all full sun palms in Arizona,and I have never had to worry about protecting them from freeze or burn,once planted.Finding a larger specimen to buy and plant out will be the challange though.I grew most of mine from seed or small seedlings and have just put in the time to get them to the landscape size they are today.

      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

      Hello all! 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 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!

      I had a CIDP seed and 3 P. Dactyliferas  germinate roughly a week ago after spending 3-4 weeks in a moist perlite plate outside in north FL. I moved them into holepunched cups filled with a well-draining cactus soil kept moist to finish germination (+minute amounts of fungicide). When can I expect to see something pop up?

      Hi all,
      I recently bought a  Phoenix canariensis  (Canary Date palm) from a local store (B&Q in the UK). It was reduced in price as some of the leafs were already dead. Anyway, I chopped off the dead leaves and left the green ones on, then planted it outside in a warm, sheltered spot (we have had a hot summer here in the UK this year) but it does not seem to be doing anything at the moment, I am not even sure whether it is still alive or not. I did read somewhere that sometimes the plant can be dead but the leafs still remain green for a while. I do water it every day now, it is in a good draining soil too. 
       
      See the picture on what you guys think!
       
      thank you
