Default Should I replant it?

Hi All,

First post on the forum and new to palms. My first palm is a Majesty I bought from Lowes. It appears to be 2 plants together and the fronds are getting tangled with each other. Should I replant in 2 seperate pots or let them grow together as they are now? Thanks. (I'm trying to get a photo loaded).

Dave

it's kinda a big palm when mature so I wouldn't put it in the ground as a double and it's too large to separate without risking, and more than likely killing both of them. Personally I would pick the smaller of the two and cut it off just below the trunk at the top of its roots. Your remaining one will start growing faster as it no longer has to compete for nutrients and the smaller one is more than likely going to have to die eventually as the larger one slowly overtakes it.

Thanks Jerod,

I think I'm going to let this one continue as is in the pot and bring him inside during the winter (from what I've read the majesty won't survive our 30-40 deg wet winters). It's been in this pot for awhile now. I'm looking for some cold harty palms to get started and then plant them in the yard.

Default no need to baby them..

30-40F is fine. Where I live it stays in the 40s for months and gets in the 30s for a few weeks a year, even 29F on a rare occasion, and I have two huge Majestys and even two variegated Majestys (which are even more finicky) and the all do just fine in the winter.
