Overwatered My Palm Plant in Container

wittyameta added on November 18, 2017 | Answered

Hi, my palm plant has got root rot, it seems. Some stalks break easily when pulled, and their base is rotten and mushy. There are a couple of stalks which still look sturdy. Is there any hope of recovering? What should I do?

If it is that far along, then it might be gone, unfortunately. You can try applying wettable sulfur, but I fear that it is already too far. Make sure the container has good drainage to prevent this later on.
