Mx Fan Palm potential problem
Posted by Gayla Mitchell on 6/8/2010, 3:13 pm
We have 6 Mexican Fan Palms (for at least 12 yrs now) - 1 out of 3 Palms in our backyard is a replacement (2 others in the same spot didn't make it) This one is in it's 2nd year of being planted and looks fairly good. It has one frond (sp?) out and looks good and one looks like it is trying to open soon (but has looked that way for a few weeks). After climbing up & looking at it (about 12' high) my husband thinks it looks like it is choked up on top and sort of bound. He thinks it needs to be loosened up (sort of opened with a small saw to give it room to let the fronds come out) I don't want to do anything till I know if it's safe! Any tips?
