WHEN I PURCHASED THE QUEEN PALM IT AND ALL THE OTHERS ON SALE HAD LEAVES ON THE FRONDS THAT WERE CURLED, I THOUGHT MAYBE THEY JUST NEEDED WATERED BUT AFTER ONE MONTH OF REGULAR WATERING THEY ARE STILL CURLED AND DROOPY,WHAT DO I NEED TO DO? I HAVE GIVEN THEM 4 SMALL MIRCLE GROW HOUSE PLANTS SPIKES 1 WEEK AGO.MINE ARE SMALL AND IN POTS ON MY PATIO,THEY GET PLENTY OF SUN.

I'm afraid the leaves will remain curled until new growth emerges and you cut the old fronds off. It could have been caused by water stress, heat stress, even cold temperatures or over fertilizing. Just wait for new growth - I think you'll find the new fronds will be fine. Hope so!
