Re: Tree id

It grew too big for its spot and I kept having to prune it. I decided to transplant it. Big mistake. It struggled to re...

Re: Trachycarpus firsts

For the first time ever it carried fruit so for 32 years I thought the plant was male. The same day I found out the Waggie was flowering for the first tim...

Trachycarpus firsts

Forget when I planted this Waggy but won't forget the first time I've seen it bloom after trimming some spent Chamaerops leaves today to reveal the above. Discovered this the same day as another Trachycarpus first. Explanation to follow.......

Re: Warm watering .......

Can make a huge difference for some heat loving palms i.e. 35c to 40c watering for the likes of Sabal means three leaves per year instead of one or two.

Big leaf plants such as Colocasia and Musa also benefit.

Re: Monstera Deliciosa Swiss Cheese Plant hardy?

My current plant was rooted while still attached to the parent by tying a small plastic bottle full of water to the stem and dropping an ariel root inside it. The roots grew on in a few weeks and I cut off the top with attached root and very carefully potted up a new plant......very carefully becaus...
