I owned a majesty palm and just got rid of it because spider mites. the pot did not have a hole for drainage. when i threw it out i noticed it had a ton of water sitting in the bottom of pot. when i just bought 2 new majesty palms i left them in original plastic pots which has holes for drainage and set them in a double pot w gravel in the bottom of the pot. Is it okay 2 leave in original pot?

It should be okay to leave your majesty palms in their nursery containers for a year or two, but eventually you'll need to move them to larger containers. If you want to use the decorative pot (the one with no drainage holes), you can simply keep your majesty palms in pots with drainage holes and set them in the decorative pots. When it's time to water, remove the palms and set them in the sink or bathtub to water them and allow them to drain for an hour or so before setting them back into the decorative pot. Best wishes with your new palms.
