hey! i wanted to reach out and ask for some advice!! i have one of the larger palms in my house that i got from ikea awhile back (i don’t know the full name of it 😬) and it’s turning a bit brown and brittle, even though i’m giving it a whoooole bunch of water without trying to over water it. any tips on how to help it? thank you so much!!!!
Man i have the same problem. The thing with palms, like a lot of other tropical plants, is that they crave HUMIDITY. this is especially hard to provide during winter with the dry heat and all, but there a few things you can do to help:
mist the fronds – which has to be done constantly to really work. it’s best to leave the pot on top of a tray of pebbles full of water, which will add humidity to the air as the water evaporates. it also helps to group plants together so they keep the air around them more moist through transpiration. you should also shove it in the shower once or twice a month to give the entire plant a good soak. 💦
