Mule Palm Initial Watering Requirements

Cool Mule

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

We just had three field grown mules planted around our pool yesterday and wanted to get some advice on watering requirements at this early stage. They range in height from 12-15 ft overall with 4 to 5 feet of clear trunk.

We have bubblers going to each palm that can vary the water output.  These bubblers are on a separate zone for our irrigation.  Is there a certain volume of water I should be targeting?  Planning to water daily for the first few weeks but also want to make sure I don't overwater.  My plan was to see how quickly the bubbler filled a 5 gallon bucket and adjust the water rate as needed to achieve the appropriate volume/hour.

The palms are showing a decent amount of stress already so trying to get them off on the right foot.

Thanks in advance!
