  1. We live in Texas and have 2 Pindo Palms, one of the Palms has started to have dropping limbs in the last couple of weeks. They are still green but seem to be very weak like the palm cannot hold the limbs up. It has new fronds starting to come up through the bud. What can we do to stop this or save the palm?
