Default Transplanting our Bismarck Palm from pot to ground and the leaves are turning brown?

How to Stop/Help Transplant Shock of a Bismarck Palm Tree.

Quote:
I just transplanted our Bismarck Palm from Pot to Ground and the leaves are turning brown two weeks later what can we do to stop the plant from dying a quick response would be greatly appreciated.
thanks in advance
Response:

Bismarkia Nobilis are sensitive to transplanting. When transplanting a Bismark Palm it may go through a transplant shock. This is normal but preliminary actions should be taken. A soaking of the roots will help with the transplant phase. A good watering once a day for the first week and then every other day will help as well. The area which you live in may lack certain nutrients in the soil, therefor adding an amenity to the soil when transplanting a palm will insure its growth. Mycorrhizal fungi, is a Fungi that coexist with plants, colonizing the root systems. By adding this fungi to the soil it will act as a vital boost, helping it survive under conditions of stress. Temperatures of the soil also could play a role in the shock, this is why the time of the year for transplant should also be taken into consideration.

Default overwatering is not bad during and after transplanting.

Your palm tree is in shock or will be in shock. When i transplanted my flowers to a hanging pot they would turn brown for a month but then come back to normal. I think thats just because the roots are getting accustomed to the new type of soil...

but definately thoruoghly water your plants or palms after planting them.

Default transplanting bismark palm

Has anyone tried germinating Bismarks in peat pots (appropriate soil) and when germinated transplanting peat pot and all into a larger pot (or ground) thus not disturbing the brittle root. I have Bismark seeds soaking and thought i might try this. Easier to control heat using small peat pots instead of germinating in a large pot or having to transplant seedling after using bag method.

Sometimes.. For my indoor palms I look at the soil if it looks moist it doesn't need water if Im not sure I put my finger tip in the soil 2 inches and determine if its moist or dry. Dry? Just add water until it drain's through the bottom. Its that easy.

Palms are the only thing I have had success with. Everything else I find requires more maintenance and heart ache when I fail. I use a drip pan now to collect the excess water and I don't have to worry about watering I check it once a week. I can easily tell if I need to add water to the drip pan. I recommend picking one up. They usually have them at the hard ware store in the garden section.

Your palm will grow in the warmer months and go dormant in the winter so they don't need much watering October through January.

Some palm types can be over watered meaning they like there soil to be a little dryer an example the Windmill and I can easily tell 1 by doing the soil test with my finger before I water and your palm will show characteristics by leaflets wilting or folding at the midrib if this occurs no worries just give it a week or 2 before you water again and take it out of drip pan so the soil can dry.

Palm tree and all other such trees are discussed for the mutual way for the citizens. The tip of the grants element and pay for dissertation is opened for the followers of the palm tree. The challenges argued for the top of the grants for the shock and all elements for humans.
