Question: Hi! Last year I bought a Majesty Palm Tree. It’s a regular indoor palm. After a few months of living, the leaves of the plant started becoming brown and dying off. I did that root pruning, but the plant hasn’t become better. It started as a very bushy plant and now has only 2 branches left. How can I salvage this palm?
Answer: Majesty Palm is not the best choice for the indoor palm. Kentia Palm grows much better indoors. Majesty Palm cannot live in the pot for too long. Max few years. After that, it starts slowly to decline. How old is your palm? I don’t think that your palm liked the root pruning. If you damage palm roots it might weaken the palm and give a great opportunity for the insects to attack.
Majesty Palm needs well drained soil. If you live in the warm climate, your Majesty palm might do much better outside. But if you damaged root system too much, transplanting it outside not going to help. Don’t let it sit in the water. Read my articles on how to plant and take care of palm trees. ~Susan Brian
