Ya, there is a difference, it's healthy! Lol, my only comparison is when you see people who have bought something fast growing and trunking from a nursery. Obviously it has been well taken care of at...

Let it be..

It would cost you more time and money than that tree is worth. It is a Queen Palm, which are a dime a dozen, and looking at the small planter you would need to remove it from you will probably cause...

Fill it 3 times a day? as in water it 3 times a day? I that's what they meant, that's absurd.

Don't give up on it.

It's probably drooping because it was removed from being aside another palm originally. If the roots were damaged (and they probably were) it can be in shock for awhile until they get reestablished....

I hope this helps

NatureGuy,

What you have is not a palm. It looks "palm-like" but I believe it is in the Magnoliophyta family, such as the Panama Hat Palm, Carludovica palmata. I have seen them before, but...

it's tough but you do have choices.

For full sun you have the Washingtonia family, Phoenix family, Bismarckia family (the nobilis is awesome), Sabal family, and also the Queen Palm (Syagrus romanzoffiana) does well out there. You can...

You have to ad the photo to photobucket or something like that and then input the link.

Chambeyronia macrocarpa

From that pic I would guess a Chambeyronia macrocarpa (Red Leaf Flamethrower), if it is, the newly opened leaves should be a red/burgundy color, but if you have it in the sun the red color doesn't...

Just to add a little to IthinkIknow's comment

You guess is not a bad one though. The Mule Palm is a cross between a Queen and a Pindo, so you were halfway right!

Good guess as you call yourself a "rookie", give yourself more credit!

you're fine...

I prune mine even higher than that every couple months so it don't have to do it as often... They will be completely fine, I actually think they look better manicured like that.
