Spots

I think we have a lady palm in our office. The leaves are browning on the end, and on the stalks there are little brownish bumps. What do we do?

My Ladyfinger Palm Is Yellowing

She came to live me 10 days ago. My brother in law gave her to me. She was outside at his house in a pot in shade. He said to repot her into a bigger pot, which I did, she is inside now. The room is very bright, south and west windows, she does not receive direct sun. Seems to be losing pigment. After transplanting I watered her with a mild solution of Miracle Grow. Could she just be in shock from the changes, or does she need direct sun?

What Is This Plant Called?

My in-laws bought us this plant from Florida and it is going crazy! I was curious what it is called and if I can plant the seeds and grow more?

Lady Palm Tree Leaves Are Looking Dry

Two weeks ago I had trimmed the leaves to help keep them fresh and I gave the tree some plant food as well. Since then, the tree leaves are starting to wilt (not all of them) and they are very brittle. Could it have been something I did or could the office temperature (74-75 degrees) be too cold for the plant to be in?

Thanks,
jessie

I'm sorry your Lady Palm leaves are wilting! There's a chance it's not handling the fertilizer very well, because the temperature ought to be fine. If you haven't moved it to a different location (they don't handle direct sunlight well) and if you haven't changed the watering frequency, you might consider repotting it to refresh the soil and then go lighter on the fertilizer.

The tree is on a wick system and has a water reservoir that I was instructed to put water in. It is under one skylight and I actually have 2 of the same trees in the office. This one is the only one that is not doing so well.

Lady Palm

can the palm recover after application of neem oil
leaf tips have turned brown and dry, do I cut off the tips

It can recover. Just make sure to never use neem oil in bright, or direct light. This will cause the burning that you are describing. You may cut off the tips, and dead growth. This link will give you different ways of pest and fungal control that will be a little less harmful to the plant: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/organic/
