Default Sun burned leaves?

One week ago we planted 3 (4foot) Christmas tree palms. We have been watering them per instructions, but some leaves are turning brown. Not just the tips. The weather has been very sunny, mid to high 90's. Could the browning be due to sun burn?

Exclamation Most likely climatizing

They where likely grown in a green house the first half of life would be my guess. Where did you buy them? Never a good idea to plant palms in full sun that your unsure of how they where grown. Better to leave them in pots for a couple of weeks in disired location to see how there going to react. Also Christmas palms to my understanding need shade when there young 90's full sun will likely kill them. Good Luck

Default Sun Burned Leaves

If RPT BROWN Thumb is an employee of Real Palm Trees nursery, then you should read the care and planting instructions that your company sends with it's trees. We purchased these three Christmas palms from Real Palm Tree nursery in Florida. Prior to receiving the trees I talked to one of their employees and he told me the trees were grown in the shade but they would be OK in the full sun. The planting instructions told us to plant them in the full sun because they would need it after being in a box for 4 days.

Unhappy California Residents Can't Work In Florida

Im Just a guest on this cite like yourself you should call real palm trees and ask them what they think. Sounds like you should take up your proplem with the ones that gave you bad advice. Sorry for the mistake just trying to help. If your trees were grown in full shade they are going to have to be climatized.you need to consider that if you reside in northern California and purchase palm trees from florida your going to have major proplems climatzing your palms. warmer winters of Hot Hummid Florida to dry heat and cold windy winters of California Any way I would move your Palms from full sun to shade, If it's not all ready to late for them. Sounds like they gave you bad advice take ur palms back....I would be mad too.... Good Luck

Default Can you post a photo?

Can you post a photo? I had 3 foxtails planted earlier this year at heights of 12 - 16 feet, and the older leaves browned and dropped quickly early on, then stabilized. Christmas palms are grown here in Florida in direct sun, but can tolerate some shade. They should be loving the 90s, but at those temps they would probably need a little more water since they're newly planted. You would have more to fear from freezing temps or lethal yellowing on a Christmas palm. Not knowing how they were raised in the nursery, acclimating them to their sunny new site may have helped, but we just plopped our trees in the ground and watered them like crazy. They are doing fabulously now.

If you can post a photo, I'll let you know if it's what we experienced early on with our foxtails. They may just need to recover from the shock of transport and tranplant. Also, how much water was recommended?

Default Christmas palms in full sun.

I bought a few Christmas palms and they were in shade. I placed them in full sun and they did just fine. They are as healthy as can be. Maybe it was the long duration of shipping. Florida to cali. might have been a week or two. maybe that is the problem. Hope your palms are ok. Let us see a photo.

In my experience it is the leaves themselves, let me explain. The old leaves, which were grown in the shade will suffer in the sun and eventually die earlier than normal. All new growth will be adapted to the current environment. That is if the species can handle that environment. (you might notice shorter leaf-stalks on the new leaves )

I have observed this for sun, wind, and frost.... pygmies, chinese, and queens.

I have searched for the long palm tree. I have read the resume edge reviews before going to buy them. This is very useful in knowing the plantation of palm trees.

Talking Just place them in some water, or relocate them to shadier spot

Sunburn usually appears in circles throughout the leaf or frond, if they are drying out, it could be the roots exposed and lack of hydration. If you want your christmas palm to be green, get a drip pan and leave the drip pan in water.
