Q.Madagascar Palm

Zone 53713 | CorinneM added on December 26, 2017 | Answered

All of my Madagascar palm’s leaves have dropped (probably due to overwatering). It appears to still be alive. Will leaves ever grow back? Apart from reducing water, can I do anything to encourage re-growth of leaves?

It is likely that the plant has also contracted an infection in the soil from this watering habit. I would suggest adding wettable sulfur and dolomitic lime to the soil, as well as letting the soil dry slightly before watering again.
