Re: How to winterize this palm

What about outdoors, under frost cloth and with light inside to keep the temp from freezing?
Still lying down though since it is too high to cover upright.

Re: More Cigar Leaf Issues (pics)

I have exactly the same problem with my Tigua. The leaves won't unfold and thereby crush the next one coming out. I am trying to help it but result is not looking good.

Re: Best for mostly shady spot

Confirms my take so far. Dwarf Nam Wah is the most easy to grow. Most soils and situations and easiest to get fruit on. Sweetheart has nicer leaves and growth while Brazilian always flower late.
