Q.Pygmy Date Palm..why Won\’t The Leaves In My Older Palm Stand Up?

Zone La Quinta, Calif. | coolpeopl added on October 23, 2021 | Answered

My palm is 15 years old and we live in the California desert. It gets new leaves but they just fall over. I have other ones much younger that do not have that problem. Is my palm too old and should it be replaced?

In the meantime, this article will give you more information on the care that these trees require:
