My Dream Palm

Recommended Posts

Greg Stewart’s thread on his Foxy Lady reminded me to post an update on mine - which I just got via transplant a couple of months back. It went through some transplant shock, and then burned a little through our two bouts of 110+ for multiple days. It’s not much to look at right now, but has put out two new fronds, so that gives me hope for the future!

I'll try and update this thread in the future - if I can keep Ms. Foxy alive!

Hybrid Foxy Lady palms are robust, durable, and forgiving palms. MUCH more so than either of their parents and rockets in growth speed in areas where Wodyetia and Veithchia are difficult to grow because of unfavorable climates. I hope they become a more common site here in the Bay Area and other parts of California.

  Just bought a second one yesterday to match this one  I planted  September 1st .  It was in a three gallon pot and the new spear has come up that tall since then...

Sending positive vibes. I’m sure it will work out for you. And what a score to get that.

I had several palms burn in the recent heat wave. Almost started a thread on it.

Just like kids, they grow so fast. So enjoy yours now because before you know it it will be all grown up.

Mine are so tall you can't enjoy them any longer, they just blend into the jungle canopy now.

Looks like it would have been a real job to dig and move.

Any photos of that LOL ??

This picture may post wrong, but yes was quite an effort to move and plant this one by myself!

Yes, since last year it has already grown a ton! these are insanely fast. Little bit of sunburn from earlier in the year but it doesn't care. Got a while to catch up to Ben's size!
