Palm Help & Advice Please

Lee if I were you I think I would pot it on as you intended, as Grev said if it doesn't come again from the top It should come from the bottom. Just take s much root as possible. Good luck. icon_thumright

Thalia dealbata

Hi Kev,

I'm no expert on these but it does look a bit pale What sort of container is it in, I can't quite make it out? Is it in an aquatic pot in a pond or an ordinary square pot out of the water. If the latter has it got holes in. icon_thumright

Spanish Moss.

There have been people talking about it on Facebook tropical groups last year. A guy sells it via his Facebook shop. I have bought air plants from him. He's worth supporting as he is a local independent business. I saw an article on some award he won last year. I think he got paralysed from the che...

Feeding

I'm sure tatter is right, however I have never used ether due to its exorbitant prices. ( I don't like to wast money.) :lol: However for root growth you need a fertiliser with plenty of phosphorous, always useful when putting out new plants in the garden . This applies to most plants not just palms....

High Nitrogen Feeding

I'm with Grev on this one I would never use high nitrogen on any thing. I the only time I have used high nitrogen was when I was a market gardener and we used to use it on overwintered cabbage etc to green it up a bit and put a spring in its step so to speak. I would not use it in the garden. icon_t...
