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.
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!
How long after germination do Phoenix canariensis and dactylifera send up their first cotyledon/leaf?By CodyORB
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?
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!
