Cataract Palm stems bending/breaking
My indoor Cataract Palm stems are starting to bend/break. I brought it home about a month ago and have been careful not to over/under water. It lives in a room that gets a more than moderate amount of indirect sunlight. The issue seems to be getting worse as other stems are doing the same thing. What could be causing this issue?

Make sure that it dries out pretty thoroughly down to 3 inches or so before watering again if there are drainage holes. If there are no holes in the container to let extra water out, then you will want to wait even longer between waterings.
