Potted Majesty Palm - Knowledgebase Question

O\'Fallon, Mi
Question by debbydelano

My Palm is pretty old. It has grown tall but the lower part of the truck is very thin. I have to use a stick to hold it up safely. Is there anything I can do to help the trunk become sturdy & strong?

If the trunk is thin and weak, it indicates the plant has been growing with insufficient light. There's not much you can do to correct this problem - nothing you can do will make it take on bulk and be stronger. You might want to simply replace it with a healthy new specimen.
