Hello - I have been trying to figure out if my Parlor Palm can be rescued or not. The leaves are green but are completely dry and brittle.

I read online that if I keep watering it it may come back but I've seen no changes in a month now.

Is there anything else I can do or is it a lost cause?

Thank you!

Get it out of the standing water because I think your problem is from over watering. They do like a little bit of light, and will do best by a window that receives some early morning or late afternoon light.

If you have kept the soil wet for the last month, then the roots have suffocated and died and the plant will not recover. Be very careful about what you read online! Shrug!
