Areca palm

I recently bought an Areca palm from a seller on eBay, I repotted it as the delivered pot was small, in a mix of compost and innes3 with a bit of perlite , I’ve watered every couple of days and kept it misted but I’m having problems, most leaves are drying out and I can’t work out why? It’s not in direct sunlight and the soil is moist? Can anyone please help

From the way it is progressing, I would say that your mix is a little too “hot”. This means that it might contain too much fertilizer for the palm. I would repot into a palm mix, with just a little of the Innes3. This will need to be done fairly quickly, as this will die in a very short time period if not taken care of.
