The Q&A Archives: palm tree

Question: I just got three Queen Palm trees and on one of them a couple of branches are dying. So is it not enough water or is it somthing else? I water them every other day.

Answer: You may be overwatering, but Queen Palms typically lose their oldest (lowest) fronds at this time of year. You can cut them off the trunk. As long as new fronds are developing from the top of the plant, everything is fine with your plants. I'd water them deeply twice a week until December, then once a week from December through March because growth will slow during those months. You can go back to twice a week watering in April. Best wishes with your Queen Palms!
