The Q&A Archives: majesty palm leaf problem

Question: the leaf tips are starting to turn brown and yellow and curling. What do I need to add to the soil/water?

Answer: Browning leaf tips can indicate low humidity or salt build up in the soil. You can try misting the plant to increase humidity. Use a liquid rather than a granular fertilizer to help prevent salt build up in the soil. You can also prune off the affected leaves; new leaves should be healthy and without brown tips.
