Growing Palm Indoor and Outdoor

Palms make wonderful indoor plants.They do not like too much light and cannot stand direct sunlight.SO find a place which has some light,but not too strong light.It is always better to keep two palm plants for a single indoor location.Keep one inside your room for a few days and then put it outside, but not in direct sunlight.Bring the one outside to replace it, altering the plants.The most common palm is the Areca palm or the golden feather palm,botanically known as –areca Iutescens.

Caryota (FIsh Tail Palm)
The leaves of this palm have triangular leaflets which look like fish tails.It needs as light a locatiopn as possible, but not always in direct sunlight.It always needs a temperature of 15°C(59°F),preferably a lot higher and regular watering.Never let the potting soil dry out, but do not let the plant stand in water either.

Areca Lutescens
The leaves of the young plants are rather floppy and irregular, but they become more sturdy and regular as they grow older.Areca originates from Madagascar, where it is usually warm and so the golden feather palm is therefore not adapted to low temperature. Put in a warm place where even the night temperature does not drop below 15°C (59°F).Areca grows best in a lighted spot out of the midday sun.Water the plant regularly, but it does not need too much water.

Washingtonia Filifera(Desert Fan Palm, Pettycoat Plant):The leaves are folded like a fan.Threads are released from the edges along the entire length of theleaf forming curls.In Summers, water the plant liberally and in winter do not let the soil dry out completely.Feed occasionaly.This palm tolerates the cold better than the head.It should not be kept in direct sunlight, although some light is essential for the priper growth.

Kentia Palm (Howeia Forsteriana)
 Their long leaves intertwine and from an elegent fan of foliage.It loves a bright spot but definitely not the afternoon sun.It needs plenty of water.

Gardening: Planting for Transplant

Planting for Transplants

Plan for starting transplants by counting backward from the day you might expect to plant them outside. Determine the time required for seeds to germinate and develop into acceptable transplants. Count back that many weeks from the expected last frost date. Plant seeds so they will have time to develop before placing them in the garden.

Crops in the cabbage family develop transplants in four to five weeks. These crops can be set into the garden as soon as the soil can be worked – about six weeks before the expected date of last frost. Count backward from that date to start transplants.

Tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants require about six to eight weeks from seeding. These plants should be planted when the soil is warm, ten days or so after the date of the last frost until mid-June. With proper temperatures, tomato seedlings may appear in four to six days, but peppers may require ten to fourteen days. If conditions are a little cooler, seedlings may take a bit longer to germinate.

Allow about four to five weeks for cucumbers and melons to reach transplanting maturity. Cucumbers can be planted outdoors on the date of last frost, plant melons about two weeks later.

Transplant shock sets these transplants back a little. The seeds often catch up with the transplants, seem just as healthy, and produce just as quickly. Timing is everything. If melons become overgrown in the pot, they tend to do poorly all summer.
