Lipstick palm

Zone 33316 | Gperez added on December 11, 2017 | Answered

I live in south Florida and I have a 12 Ft lipstick palm. Temperature going down to 45 tomorrow and 47-50 for a few nights this week. Will a few days of this cold harm my plant? Very few nights during any time of the year that temperature drops so low.

Luckily, this can survive temperatures down to around 35 degrees, so this should pose no problem. I get questions from around the world, and this has been the common theme lately. Very strange amounts of snow and cold. Just take proper care, and hope that the temperatures don't drop below 35, and you will be fine. If it does happen to drop lower than that, then I could suggest covering the tree with a large canvas for those nights by using a ladder to reach.

Here is an article for the care of these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/lipstick-palm/lipstick-palm-growing.htm
