palm tree seedlings - let soil dry out or keep it moist?
I don't know where to post this, but they're in my house, so I guess I'll ask here.;;;
I live in WA where palm trees only grow where landscapers put them, and there still are not many around, and not all the kinds you see in warmer places. I know NOTHING about them. But some time last winter I was in some mall parking lot and there were these sort of short (as in short for a tree, but still taller than me) fat palm trees with small black seeds hanging from them like bunches of little grapes. I took some home and planted them in a pot on a bright windowsill and kept the soil moist, and a couple of them are now starting to come up! I am super excited, and these are one of the first things I've ever really grown from seed, so I really don't want to kill them.
Should I keep the soil moist like I've been doing? Or now that they've sprouted, should I let it get dry between watering? Will they rot if I keep it damp? Will they die if I let them dry out?
