Washingtonian Double Palm Tree - Knowledgebase Question

Bluffton, SC
Question by aelliott732

I bought a double Washingtonian Palm tree several months ago. The fronds are constantly dying off one by one. The nursery where I purchased the tree, told me that the palm tree was in transplant shock and would be losing fronds. Although the fronds, continue to die, I do see new growth. Is there hope that this palm tree will be healthy looking soon, and not always losing its fronds?

It may very well be normal and natural for your palm to lose fronds due to transplant stress. Since it is also producing new growth, I think the worst is over and it will establish its roots and really begin to look healthy. Wait until the fronds are completely dead before removing them. Even a little bit of green means that photosynthesis is taking place and the roots will benefit from it.

Give your palm a few more weeks - I'm sure it will regain its health.
