The Q&A Archives: palms

Question: I have 3 palm plants (approx. 5' high) that are turning quite yellow. What can I use to get them green again.
Thank you for any helpful suggestion.

Answer: Start by feeding with a Palm Fertilizer, in amounts as recommended on the label. Yellowing fronds can also indicate water stress so make sure you are watering regularly and that the soil drains well. Try watering deeply and then waiting 7-10 days. Dig down into the soil to see how moist/dry it is. If it's dry, water again; if it's still moist, you won't have to water for another 7-10 days. Palms do best with regular soakings, but the roots can suffocate if the soil remains too moist.

Hope this helps!
