Re: What will happen to this Dallas aquarium Jubaea chinensis ?
I put most of my marginals in in the spring of 2007. Since then, my lowest low was 1F. I think the winter before or after that winter had a 2F low. It was a HARD 1-2 punch to my palms. Everything defoliated except my Needles. They stayed green, but pulled some spears. None of my palms ultimately died. It's amazing what Sabals, Trachies and Needles can take.
