Help my palm is lifting!


Has anyone an idea of what is causing my palm to lift from the ground and exposing the roots and what can I do to protect it?

This has all happened over the last week!

    Hello Mamoo

    Nothing to worry about ; Trachycarpus fortunei send out 'adventitious' roots seeking surface moisture . Originating from areas of fairly sporadic rainfall , this is quite normal .

    It looks a very healthy specimen , and very well grown .

  • Thank you very much for your reply, that is very reassuring. I did not know that they did this.

    I was worried that I might loose it but what you have said makes sense at it has been very dry in this part of the world.
