My Washingtonia Robusta's are growing again.

Post by sanatic1234 » Tue Jan 17, 2012 7:21 pm

I did the old test of marking the plants with a pen to see if the palms had stopped growing totally for the winter, and 3 out of 5 are still growing. Is anybody else's still growing indoors or outdoors?
Best regards Aaron :)

Summer 2013 was a good one :-).

My filibusta seedling never stopped and has pushed at least 3 full leaves out since November. It is in a heated conservatory though.

Mine has been indoors since november and has pushed out 3 leaves and i can see 3 more on their way... Although i took it outside today for the whole day as it was sunny and 5 deg and caught it on the top of the door and seemed to have split/torn the spear straight down the middle to the bottom. Will this have damaged it at all? Maybe it will be a deformed leaf when open...
