Acai Palm

I bought two last autumn, they did not survive Sydney winter, even indoors. Well worth a try, let me know if you had more success. | Elke - Sydney, NSW 21-Jan-2011

Acai Palm

Thanks to share your story with us, i'm trying a sprouted coconut palm indoors indoors for bali, it's winter damaged heater, we have cold season in netherlands, my room is humid room 60-70%, Place palm at windowsill , imported is air circulation! | Jer0en R0land - Nederlands, NL 04-Feb-2011

Elke, This palm is doing well in the garden and I did bring it in during some cold snaps. I'm surprised they didn't survive for you indoors because my friends have them in their kitchen in Toronto all winter long. They brighten up the room with green. | Anthony - Miami, FL 24-Oct-2011

Looks like it requires a tropical climate. See http://davesgarden.com/guides /pf/go/59773/ "barely able to survive in South Florida" Sydney may be a challenge. | Davewastech - Sydney, NSW 04-Jan-2015

Palm - Acai

So far so good in a pot in Brisbane, but we'll see this winter. If it does end up being successful I'm going to have to figure out how to harvest the fruit as I doubt I'll be able to climb it. | Justin - Brisbane, QLD 03-Feb-2017

Palm - Acai

Keep in pot culture until too large then plant in gound in frost free area - top of the slope if you are in a frost prone area. Fortunately human induced climate change means they are more likely to thrive here in the subtropics now | Michael Olsen - Booval, QLD 24-Jul-2017

I like palms and one that fruits is a bonus. Apparently this one is praised by health food critics for its antioxidant content. The palms looks a bit scraggley- it is similar to a Alexander but seems to keep dead leaves rather than shedding. It seems to want more water than I am giving it too.

Only just put in the ground in a area that sometimes gets a light frost will put some shade cloth over them today and after reading some info will plant some suckers from my sugar bananas around them they grow fast and will give them some shade. If they do well would like to get about 20 more.

I introduced this plant into this country, I ordered 100 seeds of the Ašai Para variety. about 80% sprouted, I have recently been transplanting into 1 gallon pots from my seed bed. the extremly hot weather has been tough on some of the transplants, but they should recuperate, some leave buning on some plants. I will be selling these plants locally at a "plant festival" .. they prefer low sun to shade,  do not care for Fertilizer yet, I tried and some leaf browning occured on afew plants.

bought this in February, planted it in the ground. The dog has dug it up 4 times then chewed its leaves off. Now it's potted in premium mix, I gave it seasol & plant starter and am crossing my fingers. It's the stick sheltering next to my mangosteen. Bets anyone? Been through too much punishment - just withered away
