When should I bring my Coconut and Trachy inside?


Recommended Posts

I would not let the Coconut see repeated, extended temperatures in the 40'sF.  That can be fatal to one that size.

I wouldn't be overly concerned at this point with your Windmill palm. Coconut is a totally different case. I bought one some years ago and managed to winter it inside just one winter. Next year inside it slid into a steady decline. Don't expect much from it or you'll be disappointed.

Cheers, Barrie.

A trachy that size in a pot will spear pull around 25 with precipitation or around 22 without  It won't die unless you get below 20.

I would bring the Coconut in once the temperatures start to go below 50 degrees, and the trachy in once they start to go to 30. Palms in pots are not as cold tolerant as if they were in the ground, the roots will freeze extremely easily!
