Q.Areca Palm Dying

Zone India | RajatS added on May 9, 2020 | Answered

Hi, my plant is dying. The leaves are drying up and the roots are black. I checked the soil upto an inch. It seemed dry so I initially thought it needed water so have been watering it every week but that seems to have made it worse. Is it a case of overwatering?

These will not like to be watered as often as most houseplants. Roots should not be black, and this will signal an infection.

Fungicides will be in order.
