Adonidia merrillii Help

Recommended Posts

2hp

I've had this Christmas palm (Adonidia merrillii) for about two months.

Can someone help me identify what's amiss here? Is this a disease or something else?

Where are you located?

This looks like sunburn to me.  I am guessing you are somewhere in the Southwest.

What cold temperatures is it seeing this time of year (assuming you're in the Northern Hemisphere, but perhaps not).

I'm in San Diego, CA.

Cold at night as low 40F last month

That's cold for Adonidia.  I would say Adonidia are "hypertropicals".  Maybe someone from your area will chime in to collaborate or disagree. Good luck!

Adonidias do not survive well in CA. They require high daytime temps and warm nights, lots of sun and high humidity. They are also sensitive to cool/chilly temp as well as outright cold. In CA's Mediterranean climate esp on the coast, days are too cool and nights too chilly for an uber tropical palm like Adonidia. The CA climate is great for people but awful for tropical palms. If you want to grow tropicals, SFL (or HI) is the place to be (credit Beverly Hillbillies).

While they are rated to only 30F, I have seen some mature ones beachside in Ormond Beach, FL. 4 years old +, and appx 5 feet tall ,and some monster 15 footers right next to a house, about 1,000 feet from the Tomoka River, in Flagler Beach, FL thrive with no particular extra care.I covered up my newly planted (in August/2021) Adonidia, with a scrap piece of HVAC flexible duct, for our foray to 30F last week. The neighbor who only used a sheet on his has visible freeze damage on his leaves.

      Today, I went out and one of these older petioles had flopped outward already. 

      There are only 5 leaves (counting the spear) on the palm.

      When I inspected the flopping petiole, I saw brown at the base.  There is also brown on another leaf base

       

       
       
       
      There brown goes all the way through the leaf base

      Hi all,

      I've bought a few Wodyeta Bifurcata "Foxtail Palm" seedlings and everything seemed to be well but then the fronds color started becoming lighter. It keeps growing and shooting spears but a lighter color.

      I am not sure if it is from • Overwatering • Underwatering • Disease • Nutrient deficiency.
      If anybody can help out with some tips or approach as to this situation would be greatly appreciated. See pictures below:

      Hello my Fellow Palm Talkers, I purchased a Washy (labeled as a Filifera, imo its a Filibusta) about a month ago from HD, I normally don't get my palms from big name corporations, however this palm was priced very low for its size and for the area I live in, St. George, Utah. It's been in the ground for a month, I've been good about watering it,  and I use fish emulsion fertilizer during planting, in my experience it usually helps reduce transplant shock. Anyways, I'm concerned about a couple of things, however the speckling on the petioles is my main concern. I'm wondering what it may be, and what I can do to treat it or remedy it. Any input, recommendations, thoughts and ideas will be greatly appreciated. I hope everybody is doing as well as they can during these stressful and challenging times! I hope you all stay safe and healthy! God Bless,
       
      Thanks
       
      Colby

      Hey guys,
      I met a super difficult situation.
      I plant some peach palms in the Southwest of China,some of them are in the pots.
      One week ago,the leaves of the seedlings have turned to white,in another word,lost their green. 
      First,the situation would be found in the sub new leaf,I mean,not the newest leaf.
      Then,the newest leaf would be dead,the connection between the root and the stem is completely rotten.
      I had thought maybe it was Bacterial or Fungus,so I used Kasugamycin and Pyraclostrobin.but the situation seemd not be improved.
      More and more seedlings begun to show the situation.
      I never saw this before,it seems that I could do nothing to stop the disaster.I give the suficient water and fertilizer,use the “drug”,but still too bad.
      Have you seen this situation before?

      Hi I was wondering if anyone can help. I grew some washingtonia robustas from seed and were all doing really well.. I’m using a mix of fine seed compost, coco cour and perlite. All were doing fine but over the last couple of weeks they are now shrivelling and loosing colour. They are around 18 months old and have been kept in a conservatory during winter and outside in the summer in the UK. I repotted yesterday as roots were coming out the pots. Any help would be appreciated
