Hi all,

I've bought a few Wodyeta Bifurcata "Foxtail Palm" seedlings and everything seemed to be well but then the fronds color started becoming lighter. It keeps growing and shooting spears but a lighter color.

I am not sure if it is from • Overwatering • Underwatering • Disease • Nutrient deficiency.

If anybody can help out with some tips or approach as to this situation would be greatly appreciated. See pictures below:

GET THEM OUT OF DIRECT SUN !!! You're burning them up.

They really don't like direct sun till they're a few years old, then early or late day sun for a couple years, then full sun if you want them in  a full sun permanent place.  Wait till they're taller than you are for full mid day sun.

My first attempt at Wodyeta Bifurcata by seed:

Seeds in 1:1 Perlite and Peatmoss sowed August 8, noticed first germination on September 5th;

Good luck :)

I planted 2 seeds 9 months ago... they both germinated but have taken ages to grow. Only about 5cm after 9months.

Photo I took this morning.

Painfully slow, just like the spear on my foxtail. Taken ages to open up, already pushing a second spear behind it. Starting to wonder if its going to open at all.

Is that a worm trying to crawl out of the germination box?

Hi Luis,

that's funny, no, it's actually where I drew a line to discern younger less ripe seeds to the ones that dried out a bit more.

Did you collect those seeds from the ground that had already dried or were they fresh you cleaned the fruit off of? I ask because a month seems very fast for Foxtail germination without delidding and if they were old seed collected from the base of a tree they may have started germinating already before you got them.

I had two batches of seeds from the same tree @NOT A TA. Ones which were ripe and taken from the tree and some that fell and dried off a bit, cleaned both up and let them soak 2-3 days and afterwards put them in perlite and peatmoss. It's a possibility that they did started germinating.

Does anyone know how to achieve such a cluster? Do you have to plant them together as seedlings once germinated? (Got the image online)

Put three seeds (germinated is better as close as possible in a container, that's about it. If you try with three small palms close together they get more like 3 telephone poles rather then the arched look you really want to achieve

Keep on the good work...first germination is there, looking fine! Be patient now...

That makes sense, expect the fresh ones to take longer, sometimes several months. I have found you can speed up germination of fresh ones by grinding off the end then soaking a week or more till you see the white tip start to pop.

Hi @Rickybobby

For germination I used peatmoss & perlite 1:1.

If your going to grow in pots. See if you can get coco coir and perlite that will help huge for drainage and overall health down the stretch

Thanks for the tip @Rickybobby, I'll see if I can find that here on the island.

Hi all,

So I moved the young seedlings out of direct sun as per @NOT A TA advice, but now I started noticing these browning spots (I'm not sure if this was caused by some rainfall we've been having on the island) and they are kinda spreading at an alarming rate. 

Can anyone help me out identifying what's going on and how to tackle it right away? See below pics:

That is sunburn damage! It is the result of overexposure when you first put them out in full sun. I live in a very hot and dry area and see the same symptoms here,all the time.

Thanks to @NOT A TA, He sent me 6 seeds I guess back in March.

I placed them outside, exposed, south facing, in a 15 gal pot and here are are two sprouts:

Even when young their leaflet tips are jagged. Incredible.

      Hello my Fellow Palm Talkers, I purchased a Washy (labeled as a Filifera, imo its a Filibusta) about a month ago from HD, I normally don't get my palms from big name corporations, however this palm was priced very low for its size and for the area I live in, St. George, Utah. It's been in the ground for a month, I've been good about watering it,  and I use fish emulsion fertilizer during planting, in my experience it usually helps reduce transplant shock. Anyways, I'm concerned about a couple of things, however the speckling on the petioles is my main concern. I'm wondering what it may be, and what I can do to treat it or remedy it. Any input, recommendations, thoughts and ideas will be greatly appreciated. I hope everybody is doing as well as they can during these stressful and challenging times! I hope you all stay safe and healthy! God Bless,
       
      Thanks

      My mom is simplifying her plant collection and gave me two of what I think are parlor palms. My dad had accidentally put them directly into the sun after a long winter, so they did get sunburnt... but you know, that can be dealt with. 
       
      We discovered after the fact, though, that they have huge amounts of SCALE. She’d had no idea and feels terrible. 
       
      What do you think, are these past help? If not, is it safe to trim off the worst branches and then use Dawn on the rest over the course of a few weeks? If so, should I quarantine them away from my other plants, since I so far do not have scale in my own garden? Idk how readily it spreads outside. Or do we just toss both of the trees?
       
      Here are my quick snaps: 
       
      (Also, I have no idea what the black is)

      Can anybody tell me what is killing my palms?  I've lost a few like this in the last few years.  I would really like to try to save this one as it's part of a set along the road, and have a remedy for future.  I've lost Royal Caribbean Palms like this one and Champagne palms.  They show clear signs of distress as fronds grow poorly and bunch up, crown starts to grow narrower and wither like this one.   There's what appears to be rot at the top of the trunk at the crown.  They seem to rot out inside.  I don't see any obvious signs of infestation.  If you have any ideas I'd sure appreciate it. 
      Thank you so much!

      In a shaded section of my yard I have some Ivory Canes, Kings, Shaving Brush, and Flame Throwers. Older fronds are turning a dark brown and dying prematurely. I pulled back the leaf base sheath of one of the Kings and did not see any pink rot or other fungus. I live in central coastal San Diego, CA 92122. I deep water them once a week. I have clay soil. Any idea what would be causing this?

      Hey guys,
      I met a super difficult situation.
      I plant some peach palms in the Southwest of China,some of them are in the pots.
      One week ago,the leaves of the seedlings have turned to white,in another word,lost their green. 
      First,the situation would be found in the sub new leaf,I mean,not the newest leaf.
      Then,the newest leaf would be dead,the connection between the root and the stem is completely rotten.
      I had thought maybe it was Bacterial or Fungus,so I used Kasugamycin and Pyraclostrobin.but the situation seemd not be improved.
      More and more seedlings begun to show the situation.
      I never saw this before,it seems that I could do nothing to stop the disaster.I give the suficient water and fertilizer,use the “drug”,but still too bad.
      Have you seen this situation before?
