Question Regarding Madagascar Palm

saj_2002February 8, 2013

I have a madagascar palm for over 5 - 6 years. It seems to be happy (a bit etiolated?) but I see roots coming out of the hole at the bottom. Is it time to repot? Thank you for all advice..

OMG your palm is amazing!! I just repotted 4 of mine for the same root reasons..so far, so good. I do give them a bit of filtered light as our sun has become much too strong mid-day and late afternoon.
