Question Palm tree questions

I have a Banana palm tree that froze outside from the snow and I brought it inside and a new leaf is emerging. How is this possible? I left it in a supply closet and thought it was dead and never got around to throwing it away and then bam two leaves coming out. How can I make more of these plants, i am fascinated by them and would like to give them out to my friends.. I have pictures on my facebook you can go to it here.

Question My palms are still doing good and they are covered with snow!

I have a question about the windmill palms I bought in spring time... they were green when I received them but today I took off the burlap which were covering them and they had brown edges. When the cold is gone, can I remove all the brown edges or should I leave them. Also, is there anything that could speed up the growth of the palms, I would like to make a candy cane look for them this next Christmas coming up.

Question Question about windmill palm,

I have the same question about the windmill palm, I checked it out this morning under some snow and its leaves are green with brown edges and two of the 8 leaves are brown. I wrapped them in burlap back in October and I am worried about tomorrows weather, its forecasted to be 3 degrees F at night. I don't know how cold these palms are allowed to get, but by going by the information I found online, they should die. I called this online store and they said it could take a brief cold snap at 10 to 15 degrees, but not endure long. So now I am left to dig it out of my yard and bring it inside the garage, so it wont die.
Do you know what temperature your tree or burlap was when you removed it? Do you know of any ideas to keep it from freezing? Would the palm die if I removed it from the ground during the winter? Do you think taking it out of the ground is a good idea?

Lightbulb We had some good warm weather for a couple of days

And now its snowing, I cannot believe March is around the corner and its still snowing outside. That damn ground hog need to be fired and a hedge hog placed in its stead. I went to Great Wolf for the first time and had a blast. The weather was a constant 70 to 80, but since I've been back its frigid. My palm is doing good Buffalo, and yes if you take your palm out of the ground it will die if you place it in or around snow, so try to do it quickly and have everything ready.

Default I live near Central Park and saw someone selling palm trees

Its almost winter time and I wanted to know if these palm trees would make it through the winter. The salesman said they were indoor palms. What if my place does not have a window?

Default Summer time flew by

Its already getting to be autumn again, people are already starting to put out there Christmas lights and its not even October. The other day I went shopping and saw that the Halloween decorations were out and right next to them were the Christmas decorations. Its almost like china has an abundance and gives it to the usa at a discount if they order before and so everyone buys it... I wonder how much Christmas junk ends up in the landfill area.

Question Just bought a couple more windmill palms

I ordered some last year to see if they would make it through the winter, and out of the four I bought, three made it. I bought a couple of more but wanted to know if there was anything else I could do to keep from losing any of them. Last year I used burlapped and christmas lights but we had a blizzard that came through and knocked out the power for a couple of days and I think thats when I lost the windmill. I uncovered it and noticed that i could pull out the spear and then I looked inside and found little maggets or soemthing growing inside, I sprayed it witha fungicide and I guess it was too late.

Smile Buying Palm Trees for Long Island New York

I have some palm trees and I live in the Long Island Beach area of New York, that I would like to give away for a reasonable cost. If your interested, please send me a message. I already paid for the shipping of the palms to get up here, but I purchased too many. Now my home looks like a tropical paradise with black pots in my yard. I checked with the local palm tree nurseries in the area, but they ran out, so I am hoping to get some replies. Thanks so much.

Arrow Anyone else on here from NYU?

Wassup fellow Bobcats, is there anyone else on here that is currently attending? I am an undergrad but going for Tourism management at NYU. I am into palm trees since I am originally from Alabama, but was forced to go to my father's alma mater, so I was thinking about getting some palm trees for my apartment which I share with 2 roomates. Let me know which ones would be best for small areas and that wont grow out of my room. Watering isnt such a big deal, its more the size and sunlight that is needed. I have a window but it only shines for about 2 hours each day through the window.

I posted up a picture of what it looks like with my friend covering up her face. Its not too much space but just enough to bring a piece of home back with me.

Just from looking at the attached photo, I can tell your limited to space..so If your in need of multiple palms/plants for interior designing, a great choice would be a Rock Juniper Bonsai. Doesn't compromise too much space, easy in-door growth..& minimal maintenance to up keep with this spectacular Bonsai. I suppose Another alternative could be & Aloe plant :] A pleasure to help

Does anyone know what can cause a brown spot on the trunk of my small Bismarck Palm?
I have had my Bizzie for 2 1/2 months and other than some spider mite problems which I've treated with a neem oil solution and a little browning at the frond tips it seems to be doing well.

Hey NYU Palmhugger,

Not attending the university but i have a few suggestions on types of Palms that do well in low light. The Kentia Palm (Needs alotta water) Beautiful Palms though.
The Majesty Palm Great for indoors and low light.
The Bamboo Palm almost impossible to kill and doesn't need any sunlight and hardly need to water ever!
