Growth update

Recommended Posts

Moved some palms around due to the sun continuing to lower in the sky until winter solstice! South facing balcony getting blasted with sun this time of year when suns path gets lower in sky! Regarding the 2nd picture of 2 coconut palms - the one on right side is getting sent to a friend with a house since it’s the only coconut palm not doing well. Will be replacing it with a phoenix roebelenii in next coming days!

It's always a good idea to move plants around as the seasons change to ensure they're getting the right amount of sunlight and warmth. It's also great that you're sending the struggling coconut palm to a friend who can provide it with better care. When you replace the coconut palm with a Phoenix roebelenii (Pygmy Date Palm), keep in mind that this plant prefers bright, indirect light and well-draining soil. Make sure to plant it in a container with drainage holes and water it regularly, but do not overwater it as this can lead to root rot. Also, pay attention to the size of the container you choose. A container that is too small can restrict root growth and lead to stunted growth of the plant, while a container that is too large can lead to overwatering and root rot. The size of the container should allow for the plant to grow for at least a few years before needing to be repotted. Finally, consider fertilizing your Phoenix roebelenii every few months with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer to ensure it has the necessary nutrients for healthy growth. With proper care, your new palm should thrive in its new home!
