Answer: I'm not sure why your palm died, but palms can die if the soil is too moist, which encourages root rot. The usual reasons for browning of the tips of palm leaves are dry air, underwatering, cold air, or excessive minerals in the water. Try misting the leaves daily to increase humidity around the plant, keeping the soil moist but not soggy wet, and keeping the plant out of drafts. You may want to use bottled rather than tap water if you know your water is very hard. Hope this information helps you keep your palms healthy.
