Q.Christmas Tree Palms Dead
I planted a small Christmas tree palm in my yard. Went on vacation without watering it for 5 days. Came home and the prawns were all yellow. It got hot while I Was gone. The trunks if that’s what there called are still green, been watering every day. Any suggestions?

Unfortunately, your photo did not come through. I am unable to see the damage.
Likely, the original trunk is dead. It may send up a new one beside the original, but the original might not recover. Make sure that the soil does get a chance to dry out, completely, down to about 2 inches or so between waterings. This will keep from overwatering.
