Q.After transplanting palm to a different container; it started dying out on me and I can’t seem to revive it

I have a green thumb I can usually make everything grow but I’m not having luck with this plant especially after I transplanted it and took some of the babies and put them in different containers. I’m going to try to give it some sugar today but when taking a picture of it I noticed there was one new growth on it.

It looks overly wet and possibly transplanted to too large of a container too fast. They must be potted up to a container only an inch bigger on each side to avoid overwatering, then allowed to get completely rootbound before transplanting again.

With this, you may have to size back down and put in fresh soil. Make sure to only water when the soil is almost completely dry down to several inches before watering again. This will prevent further decay.
