Answer: Sudden death of an indoor palm tree can usually be traced to overwatering or overfertilizing. Too much fertilizer can burn the roots and kill the plant. Overly soggy soils can actually suffocate the roots. You might try repotting it in fresh potting soil but I think you will find that when you unpot it, the roots will be either mushy or hard and brown. Placing an indoor plant out in the direct sunshine can burn the leaves so take it back inside and try repotting it. Hope it recovers.
