I have several of these palms in pots on the porch. It is full sun most of the day. I keep having the problem shown in the photo. Is this a lack of water?

It could be:

Not enough water

Too much sun

Salt buildup in the soil

Or a combination of all these things.

Those Palms were grown in a nursery for indoor use where the light is much less intense than outdoor sun. They might be okay outside but only in a shaded location.

That size tree in that size pot could dry out very often, daily, in the heat of summer in FL.

...BUT does the outer pot fill with water when it rains (&/or when you water?)

And are they concrete?
