Q.Windmill Palm Needs Help ASAP

Zone Delanco, NJ 08075 | Anonymous added on June 26, 2022 | Answered

I have 2 windmill Palm trees. One (Miami, name I have plant) is thriving; the other (Philly, other Palm name)is not. I’ve replaced the palm in the place where Philly is once before, because it didn’t survive. So maybe the soil is the problem- I don’t know. The person that planted it suggested SuperThrive once a week. I did use it every Sunday. The Palm bore fruit. Healthy looking yellow flowers, as did Miami. However the center fronds are green, the older fronds are brown/black. The is not drooping of the leaves, they just stick straight up, never fall and are brown/black. The furry burlap is missing from a large section of the trunk as well, and looks to be spreading higher up the trunk. I purchased a Palm fertilizer from Amazon. Waiting for it to arrive. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
