How do I stimulate root growth?
I just purchased a nice sized windmill palm from someone. It's about 5 feet tall with 3 feet of overall trunk. The leaves and spears look very healthy and the trunk is firm, but the roots look dessicated and seem dried out. I don't think it's root rot because it has been in a garage all winter and the soil was very dry.
Could this be lack of water? Will they recover? Can it generate new roots from the trunk base? Can I save it?
