+Kevin Williams , but I figure that in a year or so I'll actually need to repot it, and this larger cache pot will easily accommodate that. I'll see what Kevin says.
In addition to putting it in its new home, I did some major surgery. I cut off the longest branch and the plant will look a bit lop-sided until that new spear (you can see it on the left) starts to fill out. It will!
Inside of the pot are a couple of big pieces of flagstone, which I used to lift the plant up to its proper height and to insure that the trunk was straight. This plant originally shared its pot with two other plants, so the trunk is actually leaning in the pot, so I did a little bit of angle work to make it look like it's growing straight. That seems to be looking good.
I've have had this plant out on the patio for several weeks now, and with the hot weather approaching quickly, it was definitely time to move it back inside. I gave it a nice drink of water that included Super Thrive, so now all I can do is wait for it to start growing again.
I'm sure that Macintosh, the good little wiener dog, is glad to have her palm tree back!
