|So I bought an indoor palm tree a month ago and I have 2 issues.
1. The leaf tips on some of the palms are turning a hard brown. Not sure why this is happening. Is it over/under watering?
2. When I started watering, I noticed a lot of small worms(?) starting to crawl out of the soil. Why is this happening? What are they? How do I get rid of them? Are they harming my palm and is the cause of the brown/hard leaf tips??
Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

|They look like centipedes or millipedes but I can't see them quite clearly enough. I'm leaning towards centipedes. They would not be the cause of the brown tips.
A number of things can cause brown leaf tips, they do seem to have a tendency to do that - the air could be too dry, the plant may not be getting enough water, it may have been fertilized too much etc.
