Phoenix Theophrasti seedlings

Recommended Posts

JeskiM

I sowed (gang planted) ~ 20-25 Phoenix Theophrasti seeds into a single 5 gallon pot several weeks ago.   Looks like I have ~75% germination attm,

My question is:   How long should I plan to keep them in this community pot till I separate them ?

My thinking is to leave them in this pot for the 1st year and transplant into individual pots in early spring next year.

What do y'all think ?

If they're anything like dactylifera, then the roots will have reached the bottom of a 5 gallon pot in the first year. If you're comfortable with that, then leave 'em be.

Last year, I had five seedlings of Cretan Date Palm in a community pot, and separated four of them four months later in their own pots.  The last one I separated two month later,  of which now doesn't look good ( the one in the middle pot in the back in the picture below ). That seedling looks like it's experienced some root trauma , while the others are doing well. It seems that the earlier one separates these Theophrasti seedlings from the community pot, the better, but then again, that's just my observation and experience.

( On a related note, I also have a community pot of five Phoenix Rupicola seedlings that I planted at the same time last year as my Phoenix Theophrasti ,  that I still haven't separated yet.

 While they look healthy, they are still relatively small, and don't seem to have really grown very much in almost a year )
