xx Palm Tree Forum How to Separate Majesty Palm Tree Suckers

Hi Susan. I have 2 Majesty Palms. One of them is a single palm and the other has 3 to 4 others growing out from the side. I noticed that the single tree appears to grow faster and looks better than the one with multiple trees growing out the side. I want to separate the multiple palm, but not sure what to do without doing damage to my palm. Is there a safe way to do that?

It is best to do the separation during late Spring or Summer. Wait until suckers are about 15 cm in diameter. Remove the sucker from the base using a sharp curved blade. Try not to damage the main palm trunk.

Place the offset into a draining mix and keep it in a shade. It is too weak to tolerate a full sun. After removal, treat the cut on the main palm trunk with fungicide to avoid bacterial infection. I would also recommend treating offset with fungicide. It will take about 6-12 months for the offset to develop roots. Next, move it into a pot with fast draining soil. You can place it in an area with more light. Warm and humid environment will speed up the growth process. While it is young, protect it from cold weather. ~Susan Brian
