Q.I Have A Foxtail Palm That Is Not Putting Out Any New Growth

Zone 34203 | Anonymous added on May 22, 2022 | Answered

There are only 3 leaves remaining and they look fairly healthy green and no spots or yellowing. The trunk seems very solid and no discolor or deformations. THe growing point is a dull grey in color where new growth would come out. THe stem leading to the leaves is green and is beginning to get a slight bow. I have a palm guy that treats my palms with a fertilizer with micronutrients every 3 months.
