Q.Sick Pygmy palm

Zone 92220 | Anonymous added on October 7, 2020 | Answered

I have a pygmy palm that I purchased a couple of weeks ago and planted in a large container with potting soil. I have kept is watered but not too much water, but the palm looks like it’s dying. It’s becoming very thin and drooping. What might I do to help it?
