Tips for improving my Trachy fortunei


Almisa

Recommended Posts

I am in northern Florida and have had this Trachy has been in the ground since March 2022. It has grown some and seemed happy. I feed and water along the same regimen as an adjacent Robellini, queen and copernicia alba. Over the last month, these extremely brown/black tips have developed and appear to me to be getting worse (it may just be my worry imagination).  Thoughts from anyone?

@Almisa They tend to act up like this in Florida.  Here, if they aren't under canopy, it is 99.9% certain they will die within a year or two.  The going theory is that the combination of nematodes below the soil and the normally high night time temperatures create conditions above and below ground that are not conducive for them to grow well.  For now, I'd say back off the water and fertilizer now that we're in the cool season.

Agree. Trachies are difficult grows in FL. Total no-grows in SWFL

You may get a surprise out of them, so don't yank them just yet.  There are some healthy specimens down this far, but they are typically under canopy (minus the one at the McDonald's)
