Q.Areca Palm \’deformities\’

Zone 97504 | interio38 added on December 4, 2017 | Answered

Our indoor palm has been doing really well this last year and a half, after a near death experience. However, recently, the new ‘fronds’ that have come out look kind of like firm slightly crimped string. Any idea what is going on?

It would seem that you have a severe pH issue. Dolomitic lime can help here. This will help the pH return back to a more suitable level.
