I have lost 2 Queen Palm trees within the last 3-5 months, 2 seem to
look like they are dying and 2 are still nicely alive. Someone told me
that I have Ganoderma but I did not see any mushrooms around. You can
see all of some digital pictures I took at:
files: DVC00080.JPG - DVC00091.JPG are the Queen Palms which are
dying. The only really strange item I saw was picture: DVC00098.JPG
which was some sort of flower / fungi I saw growing out of the soil
about 1 foot away from a dead palms trunk.
Pictures: DVC00092.JPG - DVC00097.JPG are some pictures of 3 coconut
palms in the back yard which I was just wondering if anyone thinks
there are any problems with them which look aparant.
I may add a few more pictures shortly if the sun can help bring out
some better colors on these items then it did when I took them before.
I'd greatly appreciate any advice someone can offer.
The Queen palm closest to DVC00098.JPG started off with about 3 or so
fronds looking dried up and brown with a bit of green at the top and
then that faded. Finally the crown seemed to just tip over and it now
seems totally dead.. This took a number of months to occur. I had
been watering with the sprinklers about once every other day and have
since cut it back to about 2 times / week.
