Hello, I live in Miami, Florida. as you know the past two weeks we suffered an almost freeze weather. My Adonai palms leaves turn brown, it look that they suffer a lot with the weather. The're still alive but I like to know what can I do to help them recover?

Lots of people have lost lots of tropical plants over the last few weeks so you have a lot of company! It's best to wait until the weather warms and your plants begin to put out new growth before you prune away the winter damage. Palm fronds can be left on the plants until they turn completely brown. When this happens you can prune them off. There's not much else you can do to help your palms recover. Just keep them watered as usual - don't fertilize until they show new growth, and keep your fingers crossed that the plants themselves are okay. Leaves and fronds will be replaced as soon as the weather warms and the plants recover. Good luck with your landscape.
