Finally found my second chance plant again...this one is so big and it only cost me 25$ I think it was a steal. My first #elephantfootpalm was overwatered be me ,over potted by me and babied by me. I plan to do things differently, this one will be with me for a long time. #fingers-crossed #elephantfootpalm #houseplant #palm #succulent #plant #advice #plants #secondchance
Put some cinnamon powder on the cutting and going to leave it out of soil for some time ,not sure if I got all the rot but everything looked clear so I'm hoping its all gone. I'm going to try to save if but if I'm wasting my time someone please let me know. #devastated #houseplant #plant #elephantfootpalm
This is what's left of the trunk of my pony tail palm....root rot!! I tried cutting as little as I could but it just spread up the trunk so much. I'm not sure if it's going to survive but I'm going to try...if any one knows what I can do to save this plant please let me know. 😭😭😭😭😥😥😥 #elephant #palm #succulent #rootrot #houseplant #help
Time patience rooting harmone dry well draining soil. And small pot. You can try to save this.. but it will take time.. and lots of patience.. very slow to no growth during winter so you may night see a lot of growth till spring summer next year..
@Cyndi I will try and do what you recommend, I want to cut of the stems on top with the foliage on it and try to propagate a plant from them..what do you think? They are just drying out because they have had no water send to them for a while I'm guessing
My poor palm looks so sad, the palm leaves are so droopy and they are easily pulled off. I had to clean her off and repotted it in a smaller pot , she barely has roots and this was due to overwatering. I'm so mad at myself but I hope I can save it. If anyone have any tips please let me know. #ponytailpalm #houseplant #advise-please #elephant #palm #succulent
Help!! I've notice my pony tail palm getting brown tips more than usual and it was kneeling alot more so I decided to lift her up and I was broken when I saw lack of roots on her. I check the stump and noticed a little root rot which I scraped off, clipped of sick roots, washed her up and applied alot of cinnamon. I have her inside were she had always been. I dont plan to repot her for a week . I have never felt with this problem but I have seen videos but I'm still unsure if this will save my
I have 2 of these. One really large, 8 yrs old and a younger one. I’d soak those roots maybe put it in a deep bowl just soaking roots those roots are so thin I don’t like to give advice but I just don’t know how good it would be to let those roots dry any longer I’ve read that when repotting you cover the base same depth as before but I don’t repot for years. Maybe google images of root system/ponytail palm. I hope it’s ok but maybe some root hormone applied to moist roots some good Palm soil
I must mine I’d soak it right away for just a couple days then dip the roots in the root hormone plant it til your base is an inch or so above the bottom of the base Or you could call a good plant nursery near you and get advice that way. Be careful it looks like the trunk is solid and strong. The root system should thicken up but if u google it you’ll c your roots aren’t too bad. Epsom salt is good for palms-magnesium-read the bag but I wouldn’t feed It anything for awhile til it gets settled
After the advice of some #gardentagsexperts I decided to check out the roots of my #elephantfootpalm plant and all looks good ,no rotting it has roots but the soil was too heavy and wet. The bottom of my elephant foot palm. #ponytailpalm #planthospice #succullent #goodvibes
After the advice of some #gardentagsexperts I decided to check out the roots of my #elephantfoot #palmtree and all looks good ,no rotting it has roots but the soil was too heavy and wet. I am going to have her dry out of the pot for a while and definitely lift her when I do repot her so the soil won't cover her trunk so high. I had this plant not very long but she reminds me of the drastic changes in my life so I would do devastated if I lose her.#planthospice @lovestogarden @KariSamuel
@lovestogarden The roots are very interesting, they are woody hard to the touch. The roots closer to the plant as well when I first felt the roots I thought I had killed them but the more I checked I realized that's how normal roots are for this plant. I learned my lesson perlite and more perlite lol
Hello everyone , while looking at the trunk of my #elephantfootpalm I noticed her trunk had this on it. Its dry and some of the trunk is peeling around this area and I'm worried something is wrong with it. Its dry to the touch and nowhere else on her trunk do I see this problem my plant is healthy ,I water her every 14 to 16 days . Anyone know what could be happening? #needadvice #plantfriends #planthelp #peelingtrunk #plantid #ponytailpalm @lovestogarden @KariSamuel
Oh, no. I am not sure on this, Maribel, but if it is dry and hard, not squishy, it may be ok. I would withhold water from it for a long while (which is ok as the #caudex is where it stores it's water). You also may dig down in the soil and find some roots and see what they are like, they will tell if rot has started. You can always remove it from the pot and let it dry for a time. Just make sure no sun burns the roots. How do the leaves look?
@lovestogarden The leaves look great with some browning of the tips but I believe that's normal..I did repot her and her roots and stump look good but the soil was too wet so I have her out of the pot drying out I will make changes to everything. @KariSamuel the damage peice was above the soil I've always had her indoors in direct sun so what I think I was doing is watering her too often it looked like the beginning of something but the trunk is hard nothing is soft to the touch
Had to repot my elephant foot palm tree it was root bound and the tips were drying up I also going to plant along with it some snake plants but I think the pot might be too big, what do you guys think? #elephantsfootpalm #snakeplant-birdsnest
How gorgeous is this #ponytailpalm tree which is actually more like a succulent, very interesting huh? Anyone own one tips would be much appreciated. Thanks #birthdaygift #houseplant #succulent #plantid #elephantsfootpalm
I have one, reminds me of my daughter's hair in the mornings, lol! I keep it in my bay window, where it gets good sun, give it a little drink only if the soil is dry, and it seems to be doing well for me.
