Re: Dying Bromeliads (Pineapples) and palms... HELP!!!!!
No, it wasn't root rot. The roots were very well intact and established on each of these plants even after their demise and the soil is VERY well drainable as it has a high sand content (I live near the coast). The rot on each of the plants was only on the top portion of the plants in the center where the leaves come from (not the bottom at all except on the palms, but only because they had sat there for about a month until I figured out they had died). Also know for sure that it wasn't the palms being too close to the house, as they were transplanted FAR away from the house by the street (but started about 2-3' away from the house before diggingthem up). But thanks for taking a guess on that. I guess I forgot to mention some of that stuff in the first post. Didn't take a picture of the funerals so I don't have anything to give for a photo autopsy LOL At least there can be some humer in this!
