Indoor Pygmy Date Palm - Knowledgebase Question

I have a potted Pygmy Date Palm. It is indoors. We have had it since December. It was very healthy, until recently we noticed that the leaves are really droopy. Some bottom ones are browning. Can you tell me if I am doing something wrong?

If your plant is showing new growth, then I think what you are seeing is probably normal. As the plant grows new fronds, some of the older (lowest) ones will gradually deteriorate and can be trimmed off. Here is some general care information you may find helpful as well.
