How long does it take for the R. Hystrix to produce suckers?
I have just received my needle palm yesterday, and I want to try and make money off of the suckers it produces. Obviously, I will abide by the law, but I'm not sure when the palm will start producing suckers. I want to sell the suckers because I want to try as hard as I can, to at least control the suckers it produces so as to keeping it a single trunk. I also want to fill my entire zone 5b garden with these palms so that people can say, "Looks like palms WILL grow here." Anyway, can you tell me when the palm will start producing suckers, and when & how to harvest them, and how to pot them? Thanks in advanced. For images of my needle palm seedling, in case you haven't seen it yet, here's the link to my facebook album: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=oa.10150965641277330&type=1
That may make it easier to help me.
