Pheonix309

Go back to weekly blog


The Pheonix palm which grows in a pot on top of a pole grew so well that it produce so much nw roots that it pushed the pot soil at least 15 cm out of its large pot. This year I have chopped off most of its new roots and re-potted it with new soil. I do hope I have not been too drastic. In nature these roots go down a long way in search of water. As I provide enough water I hope it is not too severe a pruning. This is like treating it like a bonsai plant. Time will tell.
