What are possible problems with a potted palm tree?


Answer by  LanDroid (75)

Water is one possible problem with a potted palm tree - it may have too much or too little. The size of the pot is another possible problem; palm trees usually outgrow the original pot. Light is another possible problem, similar to water it may have either too much or too little.

You need to watch that the tree is not in a draft. Like a cold air return area. It needs to be in light but not sunlight or it will die. Only water with soil is dry. Once you have set the plant in a area, it does not like to be moved around.

Setting a large tray of pebbles about half filled with water will help raise the humidity. Another problem is over watering. You should allow the top 1-2 inches of soil dry between watering. You should never add Epsom salt to a plant unless it shows signs of magnesium deficiency, Leaves turning yellow except the veins remain green

The palm trees will show a dent in growth if you don't change the soil evey 3 or 4 months. The plant will die if there is no hole in the pot to drain the extra water. Continuously add manure with coal for good result. If you leave the roots to grow uncut then the tree may face problem.
