Keys6505 Posted December 27, 2022 Report Share Posted December 27, 2022 After Palmageddon I posted my palm journal on here and I've referenced it several times since, so I figured I'd do it again for this massacre. I'm in League City, TX which is mathematically 9B but functionally 9A. My nearest weather station shows consecutive night lows of 17, 22, 27, and 29. It did break freezing every day but just barely after the 17 degree night. Livistona Decora- about 7' tall overall. I defoliated prior to wrapping, 1 strand mini lights, moving blanket, wrapped in plastic. Plastic came off today, it's going to be 33ish tonight so I'll leave blanket on until tomorrow. 8' tall clump of Arenga Engleri. My favorite palm. I thought I lost it after the Feb '21 freeze but it came back, although it was the slowest to recover of all of them. Ratchet strapped everything together, put a 100w reptile heat lamp underneath, threw a drop cloth over the top and then tented with 6mil plastic. After uncovering. Most leaflets have that variegated look which means they'll drop but some in the center look pretty good. 9 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
