My little pygmy date palm met its demise this summer, for a reason I don't know. In wildlife rehabilitation, we'd call it "FTT" or "Failure to thrive" syndrom. Could you share culture and care tips for Perry? I would love to get another, as I loved the shape, the look, everything about him!
Sorry about your Perry Palm.
You know, it has been a long time since I had a pygmy date palm, and I don't remember doing any thing special for him. I kept his browning fronds clipped, and I remember giving him a little spray of water all over about once a week during the winter months, and I changed his pot as he grew. If I fed him anything special, I really don't remember. He might have been given a squirt or two of miracle grow occasionally. I have only had him for two weeks this time, so I plan to read a lot about his care. Sometimes I think we can give them more attention than they need.
If I find a good website that tells me something wonderful I'll share it with you, promise.
How are all your furry and feathered friends up there?
Happy Thanksgiving, and thanks for your note. I'll remember to let you know what I find.
