The Q&A Archives: Newly planted Coconut palm

Question: We just had a coconut palm planted 2weeks ago. We have watered it every day. All the fronds have broken in half. We have had some windy days - is this normal? Thank you!

Answer: Caren,

That is a bit unusual but I can't think of anything that you can do about it or for the tree now. The fronds are long and lanky and for some reason they must just have not been very strong. New ones should come out and be fine as time goes on.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
