The Q&A Archives: Yellow Queen Palms

Question: I have some queen palms on my property and most are doing well, however a couple have very yellow branches or leaves. What should I do?

Answer: If the yellowing is on the lower fronds, it's a natural process and the fronds are dying. You can cut them off. If the yellowing is on the upper part of the plant, it could be a sign of water stress (too much or too little), or a need for fertilizer.

Sorry this is so vague, but you didn't describe the problem in detail.

Good luck with your palm!
