Trachycarpus grow advice


Recommended Posts

Hi i recieved my new palm trachycarpus fortunei and after i repot this new palm of mine,i was wondering if i keep it in the same pot will it hinder the growth of the palm? (i dont want to kill it or make the stems and fronds look unhealthy) and can i keep it at a certain height and or i have to change the pot every few years or can i keep it in the same pot forever.

I am asking because when i had to repot my chamaerops humilis i could see the roots were desperate to get out of those plastic pots they come with.

Please advise me as this has been on my mind.

Can you post a photo of your new palm so we can see the size of the palm in relation to pot size? Unless the plant is small in a big pot I would tend to repot it in a slightly larger pot. Some palms like Chamaerops do well in pots for a long time but I'm not aware if Trachycarpus is such a candidate.

Based on  your description, your Trachy, will do well in its current pot, methinks!
