I live in N Florida in between Lake City, Fl and Jacksonville, Fl. I planted this Royal behind my red shed last summer. It took some leaf damage but had since put out a new spear this spring. I clipped the fronds and moved it to a sunny spot. The root ball has grown about 3x the size and I plan on moving it close to the south side facing part of my house to help protect it more. I mulched the base for winter and threw a blanket over it a couple of times. I travel for work so most of the time these palms are not protected. The only spear pull I had were the queens but they are all nicely recovering and everything is very thirsty waiting for summer rains.
Hello I was wondering if anyone knows a good way to germinate Ptychosperma elegans seeds, thanks
Repotted my never-did-split-it-up $10 P. Roebelleini.
Split up my Sideshow Bob C. Elegans - if anyone was curious, there were 40 plants in a 7" pot, not counting the ones I've chucked into the trash can before now. Also found some seeds that never popped, and what looked like glitter in the soil. Anyway, I salvaged the ones that had long roots - one of them was really impressive, he got to stay in the same pot on his own. Put a couple multiples into 8" pots and put a few into 2" pots just for giggles and grins.
And - good Lord my Monstera was super root bound. I think there was 1/2" of soil in there.
Also sprinkled some Jobes organic palm food on my Washy and my 2 Rivularis so my patio smells nice and poopy.
Hey everyone!! I recently bought a queen palm and noticed that it has a small trunk on it, is this it’s permanent size or it is going to be bigger?
This is also happening to my bottle palm.
