Since there isn't a palm forum, let's see all your gorgeous palms here! Could also include culture questions, sources for plants, etc. This is a Chamaedorea stolonoifera. These spread kind of like a running bamboo if planted in the ground. In a pot, they would probably be clump forming. Stems the size of one of a pencil, rarely over 5 feet. A fun little palm

That sounds like the Lady Palm (Rhapis excelsa) that we have in a few places in our yard in Sebastian. I'd always find seedlings popping up nearby.

This is my Sabal palmetto, the Florida State Tree. If you don't have one, you should get one LOL. They have been known to be hardy to down below zero for short periods. They are usually slow growing and mine was, until we cut down a huge pine and equally huge magnolia that was shading it. Then it started growing very fast. The trunks get huge. The fronds and as big as the hood of a car on this palm

That resembles a fungal leaf blight to me. If it were my palm, I would remove all of the affected fronds and spray the tree with a fungicide. You should destroy the diseased pieces you remove, not just leaving them around the base of the palm. Make sure you are fertilizing regularly and watering if dry but avoid getting water that stands on the leaves

Ok thank you very much for your response,

Would you recommend any particular fungicide? Is it ok to use a natural, homemade fungicide?

I wouldn't know what is available to you in Argentina. I use a product here called CAPTAN. But if you have something you make that works, by all means try it.
