Over the past several weeks, I've lost 2 plants. First was my Queen Palm. When I first got my house, the former owner had 5 palms, 2 in front, 3 in back. All five have died. I replaced one in the front and it was doing great. However, the Phoenix Nuclear Summer of 2020 destroyed a lot of palms, which need a ton of water. Not the best desert plant. Next was my Desert Spoon. This was another original plant. After about 10 years, it grows a huge stem. Mine ultimately had two stems. The stem flowers attracted a lot of bees. The first stem had a huge praying mantis that sat there for days feasting on bees. Unfortunately, it got too much water during the Summer and fell over. Now I must find replacements.
