Howdy everyone. ( I absolutely love this forum and The people that come with it )
Anyways, I was out and about today with my neighbor. While out riding around, we had went to a part of the county where Sabal Minors are everywhere but anywhere else in the county are few and far . Well I literally can spot out Sabal Minors in the woods, As we're driving by .
Long story short, I got myself one that I personally dug out. For as long as I can remember, Sabal Minor has been on the top of my Must Have Palm Tree lists.
So, here I am, Asking for Advice/Help with the best proper transplanting for said Palm. Basically I do not want this to die.
Removing the fronds, would be a good idea? Let the water trickle on it every night until dawn, for how many weeks?
Here's the Sabal Minor that I have dug out. Like to get y'all's opinion.
Thank you!! Oh and Yes It's currently in my Pond for the protection of the roots, So that the roots will not dry out/up resulting in a confirmation for dying.
Here are a few Sabals
In person, The Sabal Palm in the first photo furthest to the right, was actually a VERY tinted Blue color, while the two Sabal closest to me, were the usual colors.
Photo 2 is the VERY Tinted Blue Sabal I mentioned.
Photo 3 is photo of a Original Sabal (Right side) and on the left hand Side is a Sabal (Causiarum?) Or maybe just a Hybrid?
Photos 4&5 are of the Sabal "Hybrid" Look at how HUGE the frond is, to my hand, and the Palm is ONLY about 3.5ft Total Trunk height. Pretty interesting and impressive to me!
My Archonotophoenix myolensis has produced its first crop of seeds and I have them fresh off the palm, fruit intact for now. Read about this rare, endangered Australian palm below:

Fruit and cleaned seeds
First time event in my back yard jungle! My only Archonotophoenix myolensis has the brightest red seeds I have seen in a long time. This native of the Atherton Tableland in Queensland, Australia, may be the rarest species in the genus, according to Palmpedia, and it is endangered. I don't know how many exist in the US.
It is by far the smallest and most petite of my Archos and I am excited to have seeds to pass on. See photos below:

I got Archonotophoenix maxima seeds by the 1,000s that need a new home. This afternoon I was picking ripe seeds off the ground for a buyer when my husband, against my wishes and at great risk to life and limb, climbed a ladder way up to the monstrous infructescenses loaded with ripe seeds and started cutting them down. Down they came while seeds flew all over the ground and seawall and rained into the canal. The ground turned blood red. Sprinklers go off tonight so we grabbed a crate and spent the next hour picking up all the seeds we could find. Now our gain can be your gain.
Archo max may be the rarest of the king palms in the US. That's unfortunate because it is reputedly the cold hardiest of the king palms, according to Palmpedia, surviving mid-20s with 60% leaf burn. It is also the largest king palm and boasts the largest inflorescenses - I vouch for that. It is also quite fast growing. Check out the link below:
If you have ever dreamed of filling your front yard with Archo maximas, this is your chance to do so in only a few years at minimal cost. Seeds are uncleaned because I haven't the time or energy to do so. But they are so ripe they practically clean themselves. Seeds are easy and fast to germinate given plenty of warmth.
