Newly planted Pygmy Date Palm, fronds turning brown
I planted a 7 gallon pygmy date palm 5 days ago. Since then I water it every other day, each time with about 1.5 gallons of water. I know for sure that the soil it sits in is damp, and since now the temperature in the valley has come down quite a bit, I haven't watered it every day.
Before it was planted, I noticed that one frond started to turn brown at the tips. Well, after I planted it, there have been quite a few fronds that started to brown. And the one that was a bit brown now turned totally brown (sorry about the tongue twister!)
Here are a few pictures:
These pictures were taken this morning. And by the time I got home in the evening, it was actually even worse -- two fronds had turned pretty much totally brown.
Could someone please kindly tell me if this is just simply the initial shock, or from too much water, or too little water? Thanks so much!
