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.

Question 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

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.

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.

Default Looking for sources to compare palm trees

We're new to Florida (Cape Coral) and are looking for a tool/source that compares palms in an organized manner by key factors like mature height/width, branch structure, trunk texture, leaf type, fruit type, growth rate, etc. I'm sure there are many more factors that I should learn about that could be included. A table or spreadsheet format with access to pictures would be perfect. Has anyone ever seen something like that?

You will not underwater the yucca they originate in the desert so if anything you can potentially over water it. I actually have a beaked Yucca of my own in Tallahassee. I planted it about 6 years ago and I don't need to do much at for it. I personally use miracle grow shake and feed for palms to fertilize about 2 cups around October and then again in March or April Best of luck its an exotic species to come by so enjoy Happy Palming!

Hi PalmLoverPam in response to your question about replanting your fishtail you don't need to worry about it dying they are very tough. Im wondering if you would want to just plant it in the ground or if you still want to keep it in a pot just get a bigger pot to support the weight of the roots adding some top soil (you do not need to measure) make sure the roots are not exposed but adding fresh soil is always beneficial for all and any palms or plants. I would say they you would save water by planting it outside then it will just take care of itself with rainwater.

Hey there Im here in Arlington I care for a series of exotic palms/plants collected throughout the years. If your looking to sell I am interested. the yucca doesn't require much water or maintenece and its such a beautiful palm. If your trying to relocate or you just don't want to keep it. I will be happy to take it off your hands. message me your info if your serious I will make sure it has a good home. I will transport it as well Thanks -Gloria

DigitisedData, I have 3 extra sylvester palms my client wants removed by the end of the week. They are about the size you need. I sent you an email with all the info & a pic.

Let me know if you want them they are free if you can pick them up from Highland Beach, 33487
