Majesty Palm Trees

What is wrong with my majesty palm?

Zone 10701 | tcutler2388 added on September 8, 2019 | Answered

We just bought a majesty palm and keep it indoors. The leaves have started drooping/curling. There are some brown spots. It’s not sitting in water. I water it frequently as it appears that the tips are brown and brittle. I’m starting to wonder if it’s dying. But I have no idea what it needs.

It does look like it gets watered pretty frequently. That is more than likely the cause. Soil that remains too Moist for too long will cause infections such as this.

Treatment can be difficult since the palm may be sensitive to treatment.

I would recommend a fungicide. Only use it on a small area first to test it. If it responds just fine then you can begin treatment. This article will give you information on fungicide use:
