Answer: I think your new palm is suffering from transplant stress. Moving it from the nursery to your home sounds like a real experience for it. Palms are tropical in nature and cold, windy weather will certainly affect it. Being moved into your home where temperatures, light levels and humidity are different than what it was used to experiencing will stress the plant, as will repotting. So, the combination of environmental and cultural practices may well have done the plant in. I'd give it some time to recover. Even though it looks pathetic now, it may rebound. Give it bright light, warm temperatures, mist it occasionally to increase humidity, and water it regularly. It may surprise you and begin to grow this spring. I hope so!
