Queen Palm / Robellini - Knowledgebase Question

Question by growlingator

A nursery planted them on June 15 and since that time they have not grown well at all. They have come back and feed them twice and said that it may be a year before they take off. The tops of the Queens are frizzly and the Robellini keeps burning the leafs. Iam not sure what to do and have very little experience with this.

Planting your palms during the hottest months of the year is why they are having a hard time establishing themselves. Now that the weather is beginning to cool a little, they should be able to establish their root systems and begin to show healthy new growth. The frizzly tops indicate sunscald or wind burn on both the plants. Eventually the new growth will be able to tolerate the sunshine and should remain green rather than looking tattered and unhealthy. Just be patient with your palms. By spring they should look nice for you.
