How can I stop my windmill palm leaves from turning brown?

I have a hard time keeping my Palm leaves from turning brown, I am not sure if I am over watering them or what is going on.

Put a small cup about half a cup of twenty mule team borax around the base of the plant, and then water it. It will clear up.

Windmill palms, also known as Chusan palms, require moderate watering from late spring to late summer, then sparser water the rest of the year (these guidelines are going to assume it is grown in a container). Make sure to feed container plants monthly during the growing season (spring-fall). Also, cut dead fronds off close to the trunk.

Maybe you are not watering your tree enough. Try giving your tree more water and some fertilizer to see if that will stop the leaves from turning brown. Also, get that tree some sunlight.

Too much fertilization can cause brown leaves. Too much or too little amounts of water can be deadly. Windmill palms need lots of sunshine and if you live in a mild climate, put it outside if you can. Transfers to larger containers are recommended.

First do not over fertilize the palm. You can add epsom salt to the base of your palms and this provides maganese which will help stop the frizzle top.

To stop the leaves of windmill palm trees from turning brown, be sure that its base soil is always moist but not too much of water. Keeping it this way would maintain its frond upright and green. Moreover, fertilizer application should be moderate also.
