Hilo Jason Posted May 30, 2022 Report Share Posted May 30, 2022 As I plan my new garden here in Hawaii, there are a couple palms in my current garden that are still at a small size that I can no longer find to repurchase. So I’m attempting to dig them up, grow them in pots for awhile and slowly acclimate them for the new garden. I figured I would post about them and update as they hopefully survive and eventually go in the ground again. First up is Cyphokentia Macrostachya. This was planted out as a 1 gallon plant, maybe 2 years ago. It has grown slow but steady.. I remembered this area having some solid rock where I planted it so I was worried about digging it and not being able to get a decent root ball. I noticed the brown on the new spear so am treating with peroxide. This is an issue here with some of the slow growing palms because it rains so much (150” annually). Thankfully, I feel like I got a good root ball on this one. I put it in a 15 gallon pot, back in the exact same spot and positioned the same way as it was in the ground. I then marked the spear so I can watch for growth. I go by the “BS Man 3” rule” so we’ll see how it does. 7 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
