I have been growing to canary island date palms for the last two years.
One of them i repotted back in May and the center sphere came out. It may have been due to watering the crown.
Here are photos of that one l and unfortunately it didn't survive.
My question is I don't want to screw it up for the second CIDP I am growing as I am growing it for my cousin.
When is the best time to repot it, I would hate to slow down the growth of the trunk if this pot is too small. P.s i am in Mesa az
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.
I was at a local nursery last weekend and noticed a few of there canary island date palms had suckers growing from base/trunk.
From what i understand phoenix canariensis don't sucker. Any thoughts?
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!
