Hello,

My well established Pindo Palm was thriving about a month ago and is now dying. I live in Bolivia NC on the east coast of southern NC. My Pindo flowered beautifully and the flowers dyed back. Two new Fronds have appeared as well but are now browning at the tips. All the leaves are turning brown and dying as well as half of the center stalk. I fertilized with Palm-Tone about 3 weeks ago. Any help as to why my beautiful Pindo is dying and what to do to save it would be greatly appreciated Here are some pics.

It didn't like the fertilizer! I would pull back all the debris and aerate the top 2 to 4 inches of soil Then water your Pindo Palm when the top 3 inches of soil are completely dry. Water very deeply, saturating the soil around the roots to a depth of at least 2 feet to flush the soil.. Get a yard hose or soaker to water slowly so the water wets the ground in a circle about 4 feet around the base of the trunk. You want to wash out the fertilizer and return to the normal soil conditions you had before, . Good luck
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
