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.
As you may have gathered from some of my previous posts, I have a research interest in growing breadfruit outside of its prescribed hardiness zones. I'd like to invite anyone currently growing breadfruit in Florida to fill out a brief survey. This is 100% for academic purposes only and the consent form, which you'll have to scroll through before getting into the survey, explains some of the goals and confidentiality arrangements for the survey itself, as well as for any research publications that might result.
You can access the survey here: https://snap.coastal.edu/snapwebhost/s.asp?k=162367429984
Please share the link far and wide. I'm interested in getting as much good feedback as possible. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Question: Can Phoenix Date palms for example, Hybridized Reclinatas be grown by taking one of the small suckers at the bottom of it and replanting it? Thank you for any comment or advise.
Out of all the coconut varieties in the world, which one would you say can handle cool temps for the longest?

A month ago I purchased a young coconut that had been grown in a grocery bag. It had terrible root wrap, and I had to sever its thicker roots, which had fused with the bag. It looked yellow and sick, but it’s putting out a new frond now. Do you think it’s going to grow out of the root-wrap stage? (I’m also including pics of my other palms, which came with the house.)
