On day four, we observe that the branches on the flower stalk of our Royal Palm are spreading wider and wider, as expected. I read that Royal Palms are very fond of water; they require consistently moist soil which should not be allowed to dry out between waterings. This afternoon, we had a lovely downpour of rain, which we, and all our plants enjoyed.
Today’s photos show rain drops on the inflorescence of the Roystonea altissima palm. Final photo:
