Q.My Madagascar Palm Is Planted In The Front Yard And Recently It’s Dripping Leaves That Have Brown Spots On Them. What Can I Do.

It’s a young plant and I paid pretty much for it. I live in Florida. It’ was planted 5 months ago and looks pretty but lately it is losing more leaves then usual and I noted brown spots in these. It gets the morning sun and we were told that was good for it. I was told to water a lot immediately after planting and continue for a while. Then water occasionally. We have lots of rain and I thought that would be enough for the plant. I’m very sad about what is going on. Hope you can help.

Likely too much water! You will need to treat with a fungicide, and be sure to let it dry out, pretty thoroughly, between waterings when possible.
