Mike, good luck with your new date palm. I have not had much luck with this species. As with W. filifera, they really seem to resent humid, wet N.J. summers. The Phoenix species I do grow are Canary Island, Pygmy, Senegal, and Cliff Island. Though your picture makes me want to try yet again! I would suggest an extremely porous soil--add generous amounts of perlite and/or sand to your soil mix. Good luck1

njoasis Its ultra humid here aswell. I hope its not doomed. I had a pure filifera mold on me a year or two ago. maybe I should turn of the irrigation next to spot I plan on planting this palm in. I have a large phoenix roebelenii it does very well. Thanx for the advice
