Date Palm Trees
Q.

Pygmy date palm

Zone 33823 | Anonymous added on March 16, 2019 | Answered

Hello. The short palm in front looks sickly. Can you tell from photos what may be issue? Also there’s white residue on larger palms. I used palm fertilizer about a month ago (grass on either side of palm was killed in preparation for new landscaping). Thank you
