Washingtonia Montréal Winter 2022-23

I think you are a dedicated palm lover. Kudos to you. Update us with photos when you release your Washy. What temps are you looking for? It should be fine once lows exceed low 20sF/-10C. Then it will be a happy palm for 6-8 months. Hold off on the potted palms until the danger of hard freezes is over

Your Washingtonia got more green than a lot located in many areas of the southern US.

I'm wondering what the center spears look like. You have dedication.

Washies burn from the outside-inward.

Much respect from South Texas I like your “where there is a will there is a way” attitude. Don’t be discouraged by the Washy that didn’t make it, look for Washy seeds that come from a tree that survived a super cold event that is growing in a more northern zone it should have some more cold hardy genetics. Dallas Washy seeds that survived Palmageddon ‘21 might be a good seed stock to try out next.

The bananas are wicked. I've never tried winterizing banana outside. I usually dig them up and keep them in the garage. How tall are they?

 

Kudos to you👏👏

My musa basjoo didn't make it through the summer.  I've planted it in May and grew about 3 feet tall then suddenly they declined we were in the driple digits for almost 3 months and still are. I watered them every day .

Once planted they took of quite fast , had healthty green fronds then once summer came things changed fast . I planted my musa basjoo on the most sunny side of the house but my assumption is that since it was a young tree it couldn't handle the upper 90s and long period of 100 degree weather.  I watered every day for a few minutes.  We almost had no clouds throughout the day.  I guess it was too much heat and sun but I could be wrong.

Hey guys,

i need some help please if someone can help me :( 

soooo, today its sunny and i decided to open the box to give it some sunlight. When i open the box i realise the spear was getting brown so i freaked out and cut most of it.

 

i think my mistake was to have left too many C9 lights on as the temperature was in the 20’s celcius and humidity was always around 80-85.

 

 

what should i do for the spear and how to keep the humidity lower?

 

thank you

Typically that decay works it's way downward. A tough start to the mid autumn. You have a long haul until a frost free spring. Running a de-humidifier that circulates air might work but these are designed for indoor use and not very practical for palm enclosures.

The same happened to me, for washies are more prone to this, trachys are more tough, because i had a lot of c9 lights on my palm and then wrapped burlap, for one straight month it was fine, and them i opened the box february, spear is brown and it has burn marks on the trunk. ever since then it declined horribly. SO this year no burlap, and since i will have a very insulated palm, c9 lights will be wrapped around the inside of the box, and it keeps the box warm and keeps any extra cold air coming in warm.

Well you made the mistake of not having the temp regulated with a thermocube or similar, not having a wifi temp sensor in there while you are learning and having too many/too big bulbs by a small palm.  Best to just keep the palm in the 40F-60F range.

Also don't have the glass part of the bulbs this size touch the cord.  If this is a insulated box start out trying around 80 watts if it is a small box.  That is around 11 C9 bulbs, unscrew the rest and test temps.  add or subtract bulbs to get the temp and thermocube to not go on/off real often as you want steadier temps.  Some people like to keep a few bulbs on a separate non controlled string all the time to keep temps up to keep humidity down but you will need to monitor temps and only use if needed.
