Q.Tips Of Traveler Palm Fronds Rotting Before They Emerge.
The tips of my traveler palm fronds are rotting before they emerge from the sheath of the previous frond. I have had the palm less than a year. I noticed this a little at first but the last frond to emerge was severely damaged. I noticed some tiny yellowish insects on the rotted tip and sprayed the area of new fronds with a systemic that seemed to get rid of them. Hope you can give me some guidance on preventing this.
