Q.Foxtail Palm problem

Zone Tampa, fl | Ldipiazz1 added on February 9, 2018 | Answered

We recently had a mild freeze in Tampa and our foxtails took a hit. The palm fronds have all turned brown , but the bud is still green and the new fronds from the bud look like they are pretty green. However the trunk seems to be holding a lot of moisture, every morning there’s liquid coming from the halfway up the trunk and it looks like it’s creTing mold? Is there something I can do to save the palm?

This will be a "sit back and wait" game now. The only thing I could recommend is spraying a half and half peroxide/water mix on the areas that look bad. This can help keep an infection away long enough for it to recover.
