Q.

Overwatered my palm plant in container

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.
