What tempertaure should I bring date palm inside?
I have a date palm (Phoenix dactylifera)I raised from a pit that's now about 10 years old. I retired from work this year and brought the plant home from where I had it growing in a courtyard window where it had been under climate control all year. When I brought it home in August, the temps in daytime were in the 80's and nighttime in the 60's. I live in upstate New York (US). Now it's in the mid to upper 50's in the day in in the mid to upper 40's at night. The palm still looks good, though. I want to know at what temperatures should I start to think about bringing it indoors? I've been putting it off because it's HUGE now (about 8 feet tall and between it an the pot probably weights 50 - 60 pounds).
