Seedling ID x2

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to figure out what I have here, 2 young palms but maybe enough features now to narrow it down.  Any ideas?


Seedling #1 - Very lush green, aggressive root system, fast grower, looking like a Phoenix (maybe Canary or long shot rupicola) or I could be way off.




Seedling #2 - Green with blue hue, moderate grower that seems to be getting a little faster, originally thought blue minor but it's been growing an above grown trunk.

First one is a Phoenix. Looks like canariensis. Second one looks like a Sabal. Which one I couldn’t tell you at that stage.

      What type of fertilizer is best for my two 9ft tall Sylvester palms? Also how much fertilizer should I use per tree?

      I am in Ohio state in the USA. More specifically an area of the north shore that is zone 6b. I believe I have a 7a microclimate but I need more definitive evidence to prove that which takes 30 years of temperature measurements. I only have 7 years worth of data. Anyways, now that you have a good idea of what I am talking about, let me explain how I grow these exotic/tropical plants. I have a part of my property that is a north facing wall but I use mirrors to reflect sunlight and UV rays onto an area of black concrete which really heats it up.  Lake Erie makes it cooler in summer and warmer in winter and it is just behind a row of pines and crape myrtles which I use as a windbreak. In between the north wall of my house and the lake-shore is my exotic garden which is often 17 degrees warmer than surrounding lands.  I have needle palms, dwarf palmetto, sabal arkansas, parajubae (protected with heated wires), and most shocking is some Chamaedorea Bahariterra surrounded by a pond with a heater that never gets below 70 degrees Fahrenheit water temperature. I have majesty palms that I wrap up and of the many hundreds, at least 24 have survived 7 years.

      Will this much water sitting under my Sylvester palm kill it? I’ve had it for about a month and all this water sits under it when it rains. There’s no discoloration but the fronds have lowered a tiny bit the past few days and I’m scared it might die. Will it be fine?

      Hey there. The garbage man hit the trunk of one of our very large palms while ridiculously trying to maneuver his truck on a 40 point turn in our culdesac.  A pretty deep gash has been made in the side about 1.5" deep.  What can I do to make sure this doesn't compromise the integrity of the tree or to make it less vulnerable.   Is there some kind of sealant I need to put on the exposed portion, or is it ok to leave as is?  Thanks for any help!  I love this tree and would be really bummed if anything worse happens to it.
