So I accidentally placed my Bella Palm in direct sunlight on my western window sill, and it started to become brown and crispy. Yesterday I put it in indirect light, but I'm just wondering if it can go back to normal? There is still green in it. Thank you!

The burned leaves will not turn green again so cut those out. Keep it out of the sun. A lot of plants will find a west window without some protection (a big tree, window sheers....) way to sunny.

Anytime you move a plant from indirect light to full sun, there needs to be some transition. You are seeing the results with scorched leaves in your Bella and succulents. Eventually, Most of the succulents will come to love their new location. The Bella never will.

In the meantime, the burned leaves on your succulents and Bella will never recover. You will have to wait for new growth.
