Default Palmtrees do come back!

Sometimes palmtrees look totally dead after cold spells in El Paso. Don't cut them unless they are still dead after the end of summer. If there is some green at the top, even if it is a little, they are alive! So don't cut them! Cut something else if you need to make money doing it...

Default King palm help

Hello, first time posting here. I have 2 king palms that I purchased at a nursery. Currently some over the leaf ends are turning brown and some brown spots are starting to develop, also along the stem at the base of the leaves. One has what looks like a black powdery substance on it, which I think may be mold spots. Also the leaves feel really limp. I have no idea what to do so any help would be greatly appreciated.

If your palm trees are not surviving it's not likely it's due to the heat. Palm tree of all kinds survive in Texas, up to and including the legendary coconut palm, as shown here on South Padre Island, Texas:

Default Help

Hey there, I've got a question about what I think is a palm tree but the more I look around. The more I am beginning to think it's not. I live in Port Arthur, TX. But I actually got it from my mother-in-law. Its has a skinny trunk and they tend to grow others off of them. As long as you trim them they are nice, but if you just let them grow they look like a porcupine. Please help!

Default ANy time is good to plant in texas

I think January is the best time to plant anything in Texas to give the plant or palm more time before the blazing heat of summer.

Default New Beach Property - Need Palms

We just purchased some land on Sargent Beach, TX. The land is right on the Gulf of Mexico. We want to plant some palms and let them grow. The air is salty, and there is always a wind. It is also possible that there will be some saltwater flooding, though rare.

I am looking for some palms that don't grow too high, that will thrive in this environment. I would hate to loose my palms if a flood occurs.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what to plant?

Cheers!
-Jeff

You'd be surprised at how many Palms are resistant to the cold & actually cold hardy!! Palms like the Kentia can actually Flourish in growth from ranges of 25-30 Degrees F.
Just a fun fact

Question What kind of of palm would be good for interior lighting in office?

Any ideas for a palm tree that can live in 75degree weather indoors and only need an hour of sunlight but the rest florescent lighting about 11 hours a day. Any suggestions would be much obliged!
