Basically, monocots, which include grasses, orchids, irises and other stuff, have embryos.
Because the tunnels weaken your palm tree, a strong wind can cause limbs or even entire portions of the trunk to fall over. Giant palm borers are believed to be a secondary pest attacking already.
Jul 16, Basically, monocots, which include grasses, orchids, irises and buddleia stump removal stuff, have embryos that sprout straight up in a single shoot, instead of up and out with branches, as dicots do.

Jun 24, When your palm tree fronds begin to droop or turn brown they quickly lose the tropical island appeal.
Kim Stone, a horticulturist at the Boyce Thompson Arboretum near Superior, went to some pains to explain the differences to me.
Not many people know that palm trees actually belong to the evergreen family of trees which is why brown or yellow fronds are much more noticeable. Palm trees can be infested with bugs as well as the more popular Fusarium Wilt fungus or Nalanthamala Vermoeseni also known as pink rot. There are two main advantages the palm tree has over other trees, the roots and the shoot structure. Unlike many other trees, the roots can fare well in both very wet as very dry soils.
Generally, preceding the heavier storms, the soil gets very wet. Whereas this allows most trees to slide more easily (and thus fall over more easily), th.
