Outdoor Areca Palm in SoCal
Hey guys, I want your opinion. About 5 months ago I purchased (from Home Depot) a beautiful Areca palm for $15. It was in their indoor plant section, but since it was only $15 I thought what the hell I'll put it outside in half-day sun. It has been doing GREAT! growing and shooting new spears (no acclimatization at all) So...I decided, today, to buy another one. Difference is, this one will receive more sun and it's in a much windier spot. I know these are all over the tropics, where the equatorial sun and wind hits them hard, but they look so beautiful always. Anyone has had experience with these in full sun/wind?...how about night time lows now that winter is approaching. We don't have freezer here ever (except for VERY rare occasions) I'm in zone 10b...some say it's 11 - Santa Monica, California.
