Do you think my cardboard plant has a chance?
How to tell if the plant has died? We had prolonged, unusual cold in New Orleans this winter. The plant was too big to bring in so we covered the plant with sheets. Now the fronds are brown and dropping. A few fronds deeper into the pot are slightly green. Do you think I should get rid of the dead looking fronds and hope for the best, or replace it? firstname.lastname@example.org

I would wait to remove the dead growth until the new growth is big enough to support itself. When it starts actively growing again, then you can cut the dead parts off. If there is still green then there is a chance that it can survive. This part will be a waiting game.
