Hello everyone, I ordered 2 washingtonia Filibusta from ebay and wanted to know what kind of soil i should use. I will be keeping one in the ground and the other in a large pot. I'll post picture's of them once they get received.

I would just use standard potting mix, maybe with some added perlite and old leaves if you have any laying around. The old leaves amend the soil and fertilize when they start to decompose. As far as in ground, not sure, definitely amend the soil unless you have sand.

Thanks islandbreeze, I'll do that.
