I am noticing quite a bit of fungus on the soil. This would indicate that the soil is remaining very wet for too long. There are many soil mixes for palms and plants similar to them. This will help you avoid any watering issues in the future.

Make sure your container has plenty of drainage, and that you only water when the soil is almost completely dry on top.
