Q.Problem With Australian Fern Tree

Zone West Palm Beach, Fl 10B/11 | jkenney1046@yahoo.com added on May 17, 2021 | Answered

Plant started out healthy and growing fast then fronds in the middle of the plant started turning brown and shriveling. Bottom new growth and top growth was fine. I cut off all the brown branches. Now it looks like the two oldest largest fronds are starting to do the same.

Otherwise, proper care will ensure the plant's health.
