Recommended Posts

In regard to the fiji dwarf being disease resistant to lethal yellowing is it resistant just to that or diseases in general?

Good question.  I am curious about that myself.  I have heard though, that it is supposed to be 100% resistant to Lethal Yellowing.

Is there any coconut variety that is truly 100% resistant to LY? Just asking.

      Something new I've noticed on my coconut fronds especially one of the newer fronds not completely new its an upper canopy frond, is a yellowish more brownish tinge to the leaves and its concerning because it's a newer frond anyone have this experience before? I can get pics of the color tomorrow morning but there also is some redish brown spots that are drying out and I can see it forming around different spots and different fronds anyone know what both of these problems are.

      So I have this coconut seedling I got about a month ago. I have no idea what's going on or what to do and REALLY need help as you will see. I recently transplanted it a week ago from the pot it was sent in. Got from fast growing trees. The soil is a mix of tropical potting mix I got from Walmart, neem cake powder I got from Amazon, pink Himalayan salt because that's what I had and all I had the money for, and loam soil I got from Etsy. It seems like no matter how much research I do it continues to die. Although coconut growing information is really scattered and spotty on the internet. I water it every 4-5 days and watered it after transplanting. I leave it outside, but now do my best to leave it in a shady spot that gets as little direct sunlight as possible. I really really need help. Before I posted this I snipped a leaf that was sun burnt which you will see.  Any help will be much appreciated. I live in GA btw.

      Any fertilizer suggestions for a semi-novice that tends to struggle with appropriate measurements?!?  I worry about not using enough but then also overdoing it!  Are the spikes any good?  I just moved to south Florida and have really taken advantage of it with my palm collection, but am limited to having them in pots for the foreseeable future.  Any (affordable and easy to find) recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

      On my coconut palm most the fronds have alot I'd issues but with what seems a petiole or rachis blight is not too bad on the lower fronds but on the upper frond one of the newer ones and largest fronds is severely diseased not sure why it's worse on this one frond vs all the rest bit I was thinking of removing it or should I leave it? Look where the leaflets attach to the petiole thats the main disease I'm talking about. Some of these pics are about a week or 2 ago its worse now its spreading across the petiole and turning the underside of the petiole near the tip black.
