ZPalms Posted May 5, 2021 Report Share Posted May 5, 2021 (edited) So I bought my very first sabal palmetto and it's about 3 years old, I'll be growing it inside for the majority of the time so it can get a bit bigger so no animals outside will snack on it and nobody runs over it with four-wheelers, I do need tips because I'm a bit lost so for starters I don't know if the pot I put it in was a good choice because its a very big pot and I only put it in a big pot because I thought about future proofing so it wouldn't need to be repotted for a long time but it seems to take a very long time for the water to dry out secondly I think I made a mistake buying miracle grow succulent and palm soil because it has terrible aeration so I'm not sure what I could do to make this better or am I going to need to re-pot the palm into another type of mix or try and work with what I have but I was able to get money back from miracle grow for my issues and I'm scared all the moisture that soil retains will rot the roots. Lastly, I've noticed in the miracle grow soil little tiny bugs are crawling around which are definitely from that soil and I'm not sure if their harmless or they are a bad mite but as far as I know they don't seem to be making webs or care much about the leaves so that just leaves the roots, I'm a bit worried because I don't want root rot or these little bugs to damage the roots of the plant if they are bad. so hopefully somebody can help me out! This is a video as good as I could get of the bugs, They are so hard to see MsHYONP.mp4 Edited May 5, 2021 by ZPalms Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
