Can someone tell me whats wrong with my W. Robusta?

kaotickellyJuly 12, 2012

hello all of you on here. Well the monsoons are here in NM and I tought that it would be a good idea for my palm to get some natural watering so i put it outside and it rains like towards the end of the day or evening. everything was fine until i put it out for some sun like around 11 am to 2 pm and i looked at it and it got wilted, and there are some brown spots on the fronds. So i am wondering if its getting too much rain or sun. or not enough of sun. humm i dont know it was fine. also i just transplanted it into a new bigger pot with the same soil i used to plant it with. The soil is not wet or soggy just a goo moist feel to it and i do bring it inside because of my neighbors cats. so can someone tell me if its going into shock or getting root rot uggh i hope not. all that work for nothing. anyway get at me thanks

I Notice my Hybird is doing the same thing as well. No Idea what could be wrong. But my American Dersert Palm is Exploding those.

If anything it's probably too much sun. If it has been indoors for a long time it can take a while to get used to sun again.
I cant give too much advice on washingtonias because I have tried to grow them in pots and failed. It would put out maybe 2 fronds a year and then go half dead indoors and repeat the process all over again.

They look amazing! mine came through the mail half dead :/ but im nursing it back to health.... The yellowing at the tips may be from over-watering?

They probably don't get enough water in the pots to satisfy them unless you water them yourself.

When I bought a Wash. Filifera a couple of years back, the instructions with it said to shade it from direct sun until it is established. I'm guessing it got a little scorched b/c not used to the sun. Should bounce back fine though, as Washingtonias rebound quickly.

Am also going to say my Wash. Filifera is doing better than my Hybrid is. Then again, Its must of been outside for most of its life. Washingtonias are faster tan a B*tch. But my Mute Palm is way faster.
