      So recently we have been hitting the low 50s and an occasional 45 to 48 at night and my coconut palm is showing severe yellowing with brown spots all over it. I'm not sure if it's a disease or the cool weather that is causing it ill show pics below of what it looked like in September vs now. The last pic it has yellow patches all over I have no idea why.

      Why do some sylvester palms grow like this with short fronds?

      Had Sylvester’s for a few months and it’s about time I fertilize them but how much fertilizer should I use? There’s about 8-9 feet of clear trunk.

      Hi, 
      I thought some people here might be interested in some of the research that is done on palms , in my lab we are working with Cocos nucifera and are trying to develop different methods for ex-situ conservation such as in vitro culture, cryopreservation.  And recently we developed a protocol which allows the micropropagation on the coconut palm. This allows us to safely store these palms in in vitro genebanks but also use the material for cryopreservation or to replant coconuts on the field. On the pictures you can see the multiple shoots which are all clones.
       

      What is your opinion on using these techniques for safeguarding palms?
      You can read our whole research on: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-021-97718-1 https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-021-97718-1
