Traveler's Palm: Be Carefull! NEW
by: someDude

We bought a home in Cape Canaveral that features both Travelers Palm and a giant Bird of Paradise (White Bird).

The previous owners didn't choose the location for these plants wisely. The Bird is too close to the house, and the Travelers Palm is too big for the house. Both are suckering plants, so they tend to multiply very quickly.

I'm a palm, citrus, and tropical plant lover, so I don't (or won't) get rid of either. However, I've been digging and cutting the suckers of both plants and have been giving them away to friends up north. (Jacksonville, FL)

If you get one, and plant it, keep in mind how big they get, and how quickly the multiply!

That is not a palm. It is a giant strelizia.

Traveler's Palm
by: Darla-Jean

Alicia,

yes this is a travelers palm but not actually a palm tree at all. It is a member of the Bird of Paradise plant group. I do have a webpage on these though as they are quite popular and often mistaken for real palms.. I thin it could be the name.. lol anyway.. yes they have sucker plants that sprout up from the bottom of the grouping.. if you can carefully dig a small one out that is just starting and transplant it where you'd like it to grow.. it should take right off.. with enough water and sunlight it won't take long. Just be sure to plant the roots of it at the same depth they were at before you dug it up. also make sure to cover any exposed roots from the original tree that were covered prior to digging.

enter Travelers palm in the top search box on any page on the website.. it will come up in the results. Then you can research how to grow them and what kind of conditions they require.


Thanks Darla
