I cut the pups & root them all the time. I have never sealed or did anything to the truck & they don't miss a beat.

 

 

Do you wait for the suckers to get a particular size before cutting them (to maximize survival)?  I've got one I'd like to trim at some point.

Around here Home depot and Walmart sell the ~2g blue pot palms....but strangely Lowes does not.  At Walmart they hit 50% off at some point in the fall but sell out fast (only got one on sale last year).  Home Depot never discounts them, even if they're dying - unfortunate because they've got the better selection.

Needle palms are surviving here on an island off the maine coast. So far they’ve endured -6 unprotected this winter. The Trachy is on its third winter here, I’ve constructed a wooden shelter during the coldest month, I start construction in the October beginning with the wind barrier as it’s northwestern exposure and cover it to keep snow off. Endures the temps well too.
