It sounds as though your King palm is taking its time trying to recover from the winter damage it experienced. New growth is a good sign so I think your palm has a chance to recover. You can try feeding with a specialized palm fertilizer to give it a boost. Regular watering is necessary, but too much water is not so good for the roots. Just water deeply every 10-15 days and that should help. I hope you see lots of new growth now that the weather is cooling down a bit. Good luck with your King palm!
