Did you get a response to your post about the yellowing? I have similar issue with my Sylvester palm in The Villages, FL. My palm has yellowing at the base of the fronds on the trunk and yellowing on those leaves. The center of the palm has healthy green fronds coming in as new growth.

Yes, healthy sylvester palm will be yellow with green tipped fronds, if its a silvery sylvester it looks more orange than yellow, do you have a pic?

Is this a good type of palm tree to have indoors, and dose it need a lot of care?


Hi Musicgirl I have a few paradise birds in my transparent hall way all natural light. I use them for privacy so you feel like your outside but inside. Temps in the mid 60s all day every day. I only water once a month I fill each one up with about a gallon of water. These are the ones that flower twice a year. Add some fertilizer every year or 6 months if you want them real dramatic and chunky. I feel like Im walking through a rain forest which is what my wife and I aimed for. Hope this shed's some light. :)

Rhapis Palm Lady Palm QUestion
 
I am considering planting Rhaphis Palms down my side pedestrian path. As they are quite expensive, can they be divided from the pot to plant . The area is approx 10 feet long. Thanks

Hey Lowder, the Rhapis can be divided

Just make sure to use a good mixture for soil, the rhapis like water but not standing water, as they rather enjoy times of hot humidity. They grow great here in Naples, so anything you place into the ground will grow:+:

My new neighbor had his landscaper cut a bunch of rhapis straight down the middle and even in threes and they all are fine. They have not bushed up but they still look good. The issue he has is keeping them standing up, and after a big gust of wind they all tipped over so he ended up added fillers to help them stay up.

So just be careful with strong winds

I am looking for help with my Mexican Palm. The new fronds (fan leaves) are coming in green with brown dead-looking areas.

Any ideas? I have two others next to this one that are healthy. The healthy ones came from a different source; otherwise, they all get the same environment.
