If so, do you know why? I looked online but just found curling which is normal for individual leaves on fronds? to curl and then straighten. In my experience.
This is like a perm tho 😂


Thanks

Wow! Are those the new leaves coming out of the heart? Damage to the heartwood? A virus? No clue.

If it wasn't so green, I'd think it was Cuscuta, dodder.

It's a palm disease called frizzle top, caused by manganese deficiency. Get some specific palm fert, read the label to be sure it has manganese as a minor nutrient in it, and start feeding it.

I used to grow Sago's and never saw anything like that. It's bizarre! If it's fed, will the plant be ok?

There is lots of good information out there. This link has information to say that Frizzle Top is caused by an airborn fungus and the plants deficient in manganese (not magnesium) cannot defend themselves against the disease. http://www.warnerstreesurgery.com/Help%20for%20queen%20palms...
