Re: Trachy variety not looking particularly good
Edited by Ryan Monroe LA on 10/29/2019, 5:43 pm
Many trachycarpus in my area tend to look like that. My theory is that this area gets a bit hotter than they typically thrive and look good. Combine that with light soils and the nematodes that come with them and the heat tolerance is lessened even more.
My theory is that cultivar is just a bit less heat tolerant than your other Trachycarpus. I donít have any nanital or takil cultivars in my yard to give additional insight, but my Wagneranus suffer from the same affliction shown in your pictures
Fertilizer will not help and I have experiment with a wide range of nutrient types.
