What Causes Shredding of Christmas Palms?

We have noticed two of our Christmas palms’ fronds have a shredding problem…even the new growth. Have never had that problem before. These palms are 2-3 yrs old.

This is typically caused by underwatering. The plants may be rootbound and not getting enough water. You will need to check them and then either re-pot them or increase their watering. This article may help:

Pot Planted Christmas Palm Tree

I recently planted a triple Christmas Palm in a large pot on my patio in central Florida. The fronds are lighter in color than my other palms and plants in the yard. It looks like it needs some fertilizer. How soon can I fertilize it? Are there any other concerns I should have?

Removing Berry Branch From Christmas Palm

Removing berry branch from Christmas palm before berries have matured or fallen, will it kill the tree? I was told it would kill the tree. Please verify.

It is fine to remove the fruiting branch before the berries mature, and this will not kill the tree.

Christmas Palm Tree

Our Christmas palm is three years old but has never produced red berries. What should we do to encourage this growth? Is it safe to remove the fronds when they are ready to fall?

ANSWERS

Christmas palms usually produce the red fruit when they are 5 years old, so yours is siply too young. You can remove any fronds that have turned brown, but green ones should be left on the tree.

Is is OK to remove the outgrowths with tiny green berries from the trunk of the tree or should they be left on?

You can remove them before ripening to avoid any messes they can create.

Christmas Tree Palms grow quickly when they are small, they slow down as they mature.

Christmas Tree Palm

You may want to have your palm inspected by a professional. Shrinking of a palms trunk could be signs of insects or disease.
