Robellini Palms Dying? - Knowledgebase Question

Rockledge, Fl
Question by lauriel282

Brevard County, Florida: Had freezes last winter. Robellini palms (all have multiple trunks) are dying or have a disease. One had 3 trunks--2 died and we cut them off. The 3rd trunk has yellowing fronds. Remaining 4 multi-trunk palms have yellowing, drooping fronds (bending downward mid-frond). What do we do? Thanks.

What you describe sounds like Lethal Yellows but I can't be sure without seeing the plants. However, since all your palms are affected, I really think it's a disease that's spreading. Here's a publication with complete description of the problem. Hope you find it helpful in diagnosing the problem with your palms.
