Last November I knocked over my 25 year old bottle palm (begun as a palm the size of a green onion) and the fronds snapped off. Seeking help from you, I replanted the fronds in cactus soil, left it in the same location where it had been thriving, and am now wondering how I can tell if it has taken root. A few of the very bottom fronds are brown and dry, but the rest seem to be okay. I just don't know how long it will take to see a bulb or determine whether it will grow/is growing. Also, nothing seems to be happening on the old stalk...is it too soon to tell.....? Any suggestions?
