    What Ali said.

    Just stop watering them and give them food. They are getting water from everything else. We do the pipes on new shit. When you transplant a couple 100 grand of new palms from Indio to AZ, you spend a couple extra bucks to make they are irrigated right.

    As for the roots, they are like grass, not trees. They have thousands of little roots, not a handful a larger ones. You're not going to hurt the gay things.

    BTW: Never use your personal chainsaw on a palm to cut one down. Rent one or borrow one from Ali. You'll thank me later.

    And trust me, this will almost surely come into play looking at the size of yours now, so make sure Ali keeps that chain sharp, cause the taller they get, the more cutting ($$$) you or Ali (if you hire him) will have to do. :D

    Also I noticed from your picture, that the second palm in from the left side of the picture looks to be in bad shape. It almost looks like it has some kind of crown rot or something.

    Can't tell for sure from the picture, but it kind of looks like it only has one or two fronds left, and the crown looks like it's maybe rotting...... if so it's doubtful it will make it. I've seen numerous of these over the years and they will almost always die off.

    IMO, if you plan on living in the house for more than 10-15 years have them removed and get some king palms or the real cool exotic ones. Look around at balboa park and the zoo, there are some amazing specimens (not that I know what they are...)
    I put a couple queens in about 15 years ago, it was nice until I could not trim them myself, even with a ladder. Big mistake, kings only from now on they are self prunning (for the most part) and much more attractive. Slower to grow as well.
    Palms are cool.

    Yes.

    Your root zone is between -3" down to 5'. Thousands of roots that all want loving.

    Remember; all plants, turf, trees and palms need water and food at the specific root zone depths. Nothing else matters. Every crop has a different root zone depth; in which, you need to target these depths. Again, nothing else matters.

    One more thing and I'll shut up.

    I love fucking science. I hate telling people how to water, as I rather explain why.

    Your plants need water, oxygen and food. Balanced.

    When you water infrequent, it gives the time for the water to drop down in your soil (to your root zone). As your water drops, it sucks oxygen and food down with it. If you have too much water, the oxygen and food never gets sucked down to your root zone. For lack of better term, it drowns in water. Then you get fungus and other shit. Let science do it thing.

    Also, since you homo's are in a drought and lack rain, you get a salt level built up in your top couple inches which prevents shit going down. You need to leach it. By that, you need a good rain or deep watering to knock down the salt levels in city provided water.

    How about one of those stakes that I pound into the ground and then hook the hose up to it? Those worth a shit?

    Tues should have included this in his comments, but it's difficult to squat and pee on a Palm, so maybe he wasn't aware of it... :D

Wanted to see if you guys recomend any nice cycads or tropicals to add. Check it out if you get a chance and I'd like any feedback that you got if you have the time. Here's the link to my post.
