|I have a new pygmy palm that I purchased the begining of the month and forgot to keep it watered and now it is leaning over somewhat, and it did not get that much light, what do I need to do to get it to straighten back up and get green leaves.

|It's hard to tell whether your palm is leaning because it didn't get enough light or if the stem is collapsing due to lack of water. I'd move it into a brighter location and water it throughly, then wait until the top inch of soil dries out before watering again. With any luck it will recover and stand up straight. Hope so!
