By palm and cactus collector
I’m planting 3 silver bismarcks from seed. Also thinking of getting a W. Robusta. Is it possible to cross-breed these palms? if so, i’d love to see names you can come up with for this.
Trying to grow a triple trunked robusta trip and wondering if anyone has any tips or advice. I’ve germinated 3 seeds and placed them close together in a pot, are they too close together?
I recieved Washingtonia robusta, Phoenix sylvestris, and Archontophoenix alexandrae seeds this morning. I have a heat mat coming in hopefully on Thursday which will be a huge help with germinating these. No more using the cable box! Any tips? I have 0 experience with any of these, although i know the robusta should pop pretty easily. Are any of these remote germinators? Anything would be greatly appreciated!
Sabal Palmetto has been in the ground since May 17th and it's already pushed out 1 strap leaf but working on another which looks different to me so maybe its going palmate? regardless it's cool it pushing out 2 leaves still in recovery mode!
Hi, new to the forum and palms in general.
I got this washingtonia robusta and was acclimatizing it when it started yellowing several fronds. I was super careful about watering, so couldn't be an overwatering issue. Possibly also shipping stress?
Today I pulled it out of it's pot and turns out it was pretty root bound. And as such was not getting enough water maybe. Untangled the root ball a bit and potted up. Well draining potting mix.
Any advice on how to help it survive? It will go out for the summer once the weather will be warmer. Location Estonia, so will stay in pot. Currently it is in the corner of east-south facing window. Is getting some hours of sun. I have read that they are pretty tough, so hope will keep on growing.
Second question: does robusta usually grow side shoots? Or is this some multi trunk cultivar? Getting two new shoots off the main stem.
