Q.How To Care And Grow Red Palm / Lipstick Palm Tree?

Zone Malaysia | kengcc added on September 18, 2021 | Answered

I have 2 red palm trees for 6 years already, they don’t seem to grow well but the small trees beside them grow a lot. Can someone advice how to care and grow them into final state of 4-6 tall red palms each? 1. What’s the right way to cut/prune to the final state? 2. Do I need to prune the small trees (suckers?) beside them? 3. Is putting small white stones around the tree harmful to the tree’s growth?

They may not be getting enough water. Care tips are included in the link below. Also, the suckers can be removed and used to propagate more plants. The rocks shouldn't be harmful, but it looks like there is grass below them. It may be helpful to remove the grass, then replace the stones.
