I bought a beautiful palm plant, transferred it to a planter, watered it and placed it outside. I live in New York and it's quite warm out. Overnight the leaves on two palm fronds are beginning to turn yellow. What did I do wrong and how can stop it from continuing..?

What kind of Palm is it? Are the temperatures too cold? Did you acclimate it to outdoor conditions? Photos?

Pictures would be nice to see so we can help further. Also when you made the repot, did you replace the soil or just added more soil to old one? What type of soil did you use, and does your container have drain holes? You can also check too if there are any critters hiding under the leaves. It will also be helpful to know what is the prevailing overnight temperature you are having there.
