What goes on during transplant stress

Recommended Posts

Plantking165

So really recently in the last week or 2 I've noticed on both my coconuts one I've put into a new pot and one in ground sole necrosis of the leaves and spots with it spreads rapidly. It looks to me like potassium deficiency but I'm unsure as I've fertilized 3 times last time was 5 or so scoops around tbe palm with a 16-5-25 a few days ago. So I feel deficiency unlikely unless palm transplant stress can cause deficiencies. They have been transplanted for 2 months and a week now I feel I should have seen this in the first weeks not 2 months after transplanting them. It's also showing up on tbe newer fronds too not as bad though. Some orangish color on tbe lower leaflets of tbe fronds too. I know transplant shock can last a while but this seems a bit late to show up because of shock. I do feel that after the fertilizer I just gave it it was a liquid fert. I should back off and let it grow until October then give it one last dose before winter. But I do feel the urgent need to intervene and fix the issues but I'm not sure if the deficiencies are caused by lack of nutrients or something else or Because of shock. I'll get more pics in tbe morning as it's pouring rn and I've got work to go to. But here's 1 pic fornow. Any advice or similar experiences to share are appreciated. Also to note there is lots of sun burn too I already know that's there.

I'd say it needs water and some shade.

That's a classic potassium deficiency:

  • Potassium - Older fronds get translucent yellow/orange or dead spots on leaves, especially at the tips. Sometimes tips are curled or frizzled. Always starts at tips of oldest leaves, moving inwards

It'll take a while to root in, but after 2 months it's totally fine to fertilize.  I'd recommend a slow release granular, something like 8-2-12 PalmGain or similar.  The liquid fertilizers wash away quickly in our afternoon thunderstorms.  You could consider adding Langbeinite aka SulPoMag as a good slow release potassium fertilizer:

Yeah I've fertilized quite a alot so I don't understand why I'm seeing this on my palms. Hopefully it goes away soon.

      Hi there,
      About 17 days ago we transplanted 4 field grown filibustas ranging from 7-10' tall in our backyard--I'm writing to make sure I'm doing everything in my power to mitigate transplant shock and ensure the trees are cared for going into the summer. 
      Here are some photos I took this morning. The outer fronds are yellowing and turning brown from transplant shock, but the fronds and growth inside are retaining their green color, which--I hope is a good sign? 
      Current process for care: 
      Watering them every other morning for the next week or two (unless the temps go above 100); making sure they get about 6-8 gallons of water Planted 2x deep drip stakes per tree ~2 feet from the trunks Giving them 1/4 of a cup of Super Moon Juice 1x per week for the first month; then 1x per month after  My Questions
      Is there anything else I should be doing (or not doing) to help them acclimate? It's been extremely windy here (20+ mph most days) and we're about ~30 days out from 3 months of straight 100°+ weather.
      When should I untie them? Our landscapers said 3-4 months, but Moon Valley Nursery said 3-4 weeks. I've read the research paper regarding how tying up fronds doesn't really impact transplant shock, so am open to any guidance here. 
      Thanks in advance for your thoughts and expertise!

      Okay palm experts I need y'alls opinions.  So I made a post last year after hurricane laura I found a wild palmetto that was uprooted in the storm.  Loaded it out of the ditch, trimmed its leaves and roots up, put it in the ground. It sat dormant all winter. I kept watering it hoping for some new growth.  I marked a line with the sharpie and saw that it grew about a half inch and then stopped completely for months.  It lost its color and started to look like it was going downhill.  So last week I chopped about a foot of the top of the trunk off and there was rot in the growth area when I inspected it.  I cut down to the "healthy" white looking area, sprayed copper fungicide and now there seems to be a little hope. Just wondering what y'all think is going on. Thanks for the help! Also on a side note, one that we found washed up on the beach is growing unbelievably right now. I will attach pictures. Thanks again!

      I got four windmills field grown each around 3-4 ft trunk and transplanted to my property. Planted in full sun (sun all day long) and exposed to all kinds of wind. This was around April.
      I apologize for the pic quality but this all I could find from that date
