Palm tree question
 
My friend gave me a beaked yucca palm and it is about four feet tall and he told me it took him over ten years to grow it. He is moving up north and is letting me have it and I have no idea how to take care of it. Mostly all the plants I have ever had die on me because of watering... I always forget to water. I tried to look for more info on the Beaked Yucca and there was just wishy washy stuff... does anyone have any good advice on taking care of this palm? How much do I water it and can I plant it into my yard? or should I plant it or leave it in a pot? Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated. I saw how much this plant meant to my friend and the last thing I would want to do is have it die on me.

Silvestry Date Palms dying
 
Please help! I have two beautiful silvestry that are turning yellowish and then brown on the end of the lower fronds. At the top, they are still new and green but it seems to getting worse. Are my trees dying? We purchased and had them professional installed about a year ago. Babied them and love them. What can I do to save them? Desperate!

Sylvester date palms are really hardy palms

If your sylvester date palm is yellowing it probably needs more nitrogen, which can be found in most fertilizers, but if you use grass fertilizer, it will have more nitrogen. Just get some grass fertilizer and apply it around the trunk and water it in. The dry leaves could be from the lack of rain we have had these past couple of months. Up the ratio of water and you can even get a milk gallon cut the top off, pour some nitrogen rich fertilizer in it shake it up with water so it becomes a concentrated formula and then apply it around the root ball of the palm. Just be careful not to overload it with fertilizer. So one or two scoops of fertilizer in a gallon and then water it in.

The pic below is a pygmy date and its yellowing at the tips and browning, if your sylvesters fronds look like this then the nitrogen rich fertilizer will work.

Silvestry Date Palms dying
 
Thank you for your help. The picture you attached looks similar to what our silversters are experiencing, but ours are much worse. Our pesticide service fertilizes them for us, so I'm not sure if lack of fertilizer is the problem. Perhaps a different type fertilizer? Attached is a picture of one of the palms. Again, thank you for your help.

Low maitnance indoor real palm tree.
 
I have been wanting to add a real plant into my home, but have been afraid to because I kill plant's. I need a low maitnance palm tree; I live in Miami and I have always loved the Bird of paradise, or the travelers palm. Is this a good type of palm tree to have indoors, and dose it need a lot of care?

White stuff on my palms.
 
I'm hoping someone can help me out here, I live in the redlands and I have a few palm trees I think it some pony tail palms and a king palm tree, well I have been noticing some white stuff forming on them and not sure what it is. Is this normal? I have another tree (not quite sure what it is) that has the white stuff at the base of the trunk. Is there someone who can help me out here. Not sure if this is something I need to care for before it gets to bad. I would hate to loose these palm trees.

Flame Thrower & Lipstick Palm
 
Hey I'm a musician in FT Lauderdale and I want to add a unique decoration to my show's, so I got a small lipstick palm, and flame thrower to put at each end of the stage. My question is they are looking kinda limp or wilty and not sure if the constant transporting them is affecting them, or some of the smokey bars is causing them to look bad. Any car suggestions would be great.
Rock On FtLauderdale, until the next gig.

Using palms for a stage preformance
 
The best ones and the hardiest ones to use, such as the Christmas palm or areca palms... they are easy to maintain and the areca palm absorbs all the odors and smoke you can throw at it.... The Christmas palm really brings in a tropical vibe while the areca acts more like a small hedge because its a clumping palm. Whats your band name?

New Sylvester
 
I had two sylvester palm trees planted last week. The trunk sizes are about 10" with ground clearance about 5 feet. They are from a nursery. In this short period of time, both are starting to show brown/yellow leaves. They are being watered twice daily. Should they be treated with palm fertilizer at this time or consider this transplanted stress? thanks

Sylvester palm in trouble...please help!
 
1 Attachment(s)
I planted this Sylvester palm myself about 120 days ago. I purchased this in a huge pot, so it wasn't just uprooted from the ground and replanted. When I purchased it the trunk and palm had great color to it as well. For the past 60 days or so it's been getting burnt ends on the fronds and getting a yellowish tint to it. I haven't giving it any fertilizer either, not sure if that will help or hurt it. Please help me? Thanks!

Fertilizer will save it..

In reply to loves to rock
 
Unless you are leaving the palm tree's over night in the bar in which you are performing then I really do not see why anything is happening to your palm trees. I assume your palm trees are only in the venue for a couple of hours and im sure that has nothing to do with them getting harmed.

Royal Palm in Tampa looking for a new home
 
Hi I have a Royal Palm in my back yard right next to my pool. It is very large and beautiful and I have been told a very valuable tree. I am in interested in finding if there is someone in Tampa interested in purchasing the tree. Please post contact information if you are interested or know anyone who would be interested in this tree which is over 2 stories. It is beautiful but clearly too large for the space it is occupying.

Thank you for you help.

Hello Sunshine state palmer!!
I can totally understand your concerns the blue beaked yucca is a dry desert palm. No need to water more than once a week if that. I have a few of my own here in florida I hauled them all the way from Arizona because I just could not bear to leave them. So not much water and a really sunny spot and they will be fine. Leave it to the gardener to plant cause I really don't know how well they will do. Mine are in pots. I wish you the best of luck they are really unique and beautiful Palms. Let me know if I can help you with anything else P.S I know a really good gardener in Palm Beach if you want his number. Till then,

Ciao - Abby :+:
