These palms are susceptible to many diseases, physiological problems and insect attacks. When their leaves curl, there are two possible causes.
Thrips are tiny insects with fringe on their wings that feed on the cat palm’s plant cells. They cause stippling or tiny spots on the leaves, silvery scars, calloused spots and stunt the leaf, causing it to curl or roll.
