Can I Cut Off Yellow Flowers on Pygmy Palm

May I remove the yellow flowers on my Pygmy palms? They attract bees and are messy.

This is most likely a deficiency in potassium and magnesium. Apply a fertilizer that is listed as 8-2-12-4.
Measure and follow the directions for the chosen product. Apply every 3 months during it's growing season.

Pygmy Date Palms

I just purchased several pygmy date palms, and didn’t realize they grow so big. Can I plant them in containers to keep them smaller? I’d like them to grow no more than 4-5 ft and not too bushy.

ANSWERS

Yes, they can do very well in containers. They have a smaller root ball so they can stay in the same container for years.

Pygmy Date Palm

We have a pygmy date palm in our office. The pot it was in was really small so we transplanted it. It has not done well since then. Have we killed it?

ANSWERS

It can be easy to overwater or overwhelm the roots if you choose to large of a pot for the plant.
Make sure the soil is well draining and that the soil is moist but not soggy. The top couple of inches of soil should be dry before watering again.
Check the soil, don't water on a schedule.
A Pygmy Palm will actually do fine with brief periods of drought.
Protect the palm from drafts from heaters or air conditioning.
Bright indirect light location is best for your palm.
You can mist your plant regularly to keep it clean and pest free.
