Please help me I have been given a kentia pam and it seems to be dying a couple of the stems have gone yellow and the leaves are going brown, I have him in the corner next to my lounge window, the room is very bright but wondering if the location is the problem also my flat is always quite warm is this a problem? I water twice a week, any tips would be greatly appreciated
Many thanks

Where do you live? Is putting it outdoors for a while an option? Even though your room seems bright to you, I doubt the palm agrees. Always warm possibly leads to low humidity - not the best for palms. Any pictures? Gene

Live in a block of flats and landlord does not allow plants outside Sad maybe I will try repositioning him in to a different area of the room, I will take a picture in the morning to show how much light he gets etc, I'm not sure if I an not watering him enough as I am so scared of over watering I tend to under water so will give more water too.
Thanks
