Re: Palmetto root temp
It sounds like you will have good growth this summer. Do you remember about 3 or 4 years ago when we had a very low humidity summer and temps were in the 90*s and 100*s all summer long? I watered a windmill faithfully everyday in that weather and got almost 3 feet of trunk that growing season. It was unreal. I lost that palm the following winter in a vortex because I didnt use any heat source, minis would have sufficed most likely! Since the vortex years Tommy (2014-15) its wise to protect no matter where you live as an investment standpoint plus I believe we may start seeing shortages of certain palms in the future. Puedo trabajar en eso, Gracious Amigo.
