|Most palms grow best in full sunshine, but if yours was growing in a shady spot before you got it, you should probably provide the same conditions in your own yard - at least until you can nurse it back to health. Once it puts out healthy new growth you can gradually move it into more and more sunshine until it is in full sun. Hope your palm recovers soon.
