Q.Palm Turning Yellow And Brown

Zone Nashville | Sloring6 added on May 28, 2020 | Answered

Hi! So I purchased this palm 1 month ago. It is located on a upstairs balcony. I did bring it inside for a few days and forgot to water it. When I put it back outside I noticed the leaves starting to change and also some white stuff on it. I sprayed it down with Neem oil because I thought it might be infested. I’m wondering those fronds will turn back or should I cut them off? And should I spray with Neem oil again soon? I’m a novice plant owner and need all the help I can get, lol. Thanks

They are just getting too much sunlight! These are more suited for a bright, but indirect light. Direct sunlight will cause burning, as you see here.
