Problem with Licuala palm

Monica Flanagan asked 12 years ago

I bought a Licuala palm at Bloom 2009. In the last couple of weeks, the leaves started turning brown and I’m afraid it will die. Can you help please? Thanks

This palm is very graceful and light. It is a forest floor plant …used to filtered light, warmth and moist air.

It is likely to be okay for warmth, but may be suffering from dry air and probably, from the photo, lack of light. It likes good, indrect light.

It also does not like draughts or any source of direct heat, such as a radiator. Try moving it to a spot that more closely provides its needs.
