Interesting Washingtonia recovery

This seedling i started last summer had spear pull from December freeze when we hit 11, and as it recovers it appears a dead leaf base that rotted off in middle is stuck to the new growth. This is why it’s important that Washingtonia get heat after being mined with cold, because if this spear didn’t keep moving it might have not made it and died of rot

Did you bring it inside or something for the heat? 

Reason I ask is because it appears the temps were below normal for nearly a week after the 11f.  Not much precip either. I wish my palms would grow in low seventies after a morning low of 23f. Incredible stuff.  Screenshot_20230515-215144.thumb.png.713378f6ec13d0e60fff9b11a01e2ebe.png

On a side note, smaller palms(washy/CIDP)here in NM were seen with spears appearing out the side of the trunk(old leaf bases) after double digits below zero.

No, but it was on my balcony which is in an enclosed area so stays a little bit warmer and also has the added benefit of a grow light on top of it. When the cold front came in, the wind was blowing pretty hard and could be felt on my balcony. This happened to a few of mine last year too after being on a balcony during an ice storm, newest frond pulled, and newest spear rotted halfway down the trunk and pulled a few weeks later while older leaves had basically zero damage. A week of warm weather soon afterwards kept newest spear moving, exposing the part of the frond that rotted halfway up and just ripped off.
