My indoor palm tree is wilting.

Chances are that the temperature is not right for your palm tree. They prefer 55 degrees at night to 65 degrees during the day. Avoid any drafts such as air conditioners or direct sun. A plant that has wilted may be in shock from a sudden change in temperature or light and should be introduced to a new setting gradually.

If the wilting started after you moved your palm or changed something else, maybe you should put it back. You might also check that pets are not not disturbing it.

Assuming the tree is not sitting in water which will cause root kill, then turn the leaves over and look for spots on the underside. If they are there mix Ivory dish soap and water in a container and spray the leaves well. If you see no spots then fertilize your tree every other week.
