New robellini browning

bshirkMarch 18, 2014

I have read alot of posts about this subject and it seems like numerous factors could cause browning. Im a little confused about what issue may apply to my situation. I want to get it taken care of before any irreversible damage occurs.
About a month ago I purchased a robellini from Home Depot. My "soil" in my yard is almost 100% sand so I purchased a miracle grow soil for in ground plants and mixed in about 40% with my existing sand. I planted it in a spot where it gets alot of sun, like the info on the plant said to. The younger fronds have started to take on a bronzish hue. None of them have died completely or fallen off. Could this be caused by a fungal issue. I also am worried that something in the miracle grow soil may be causing damage too.

Please help!

If it had been kept in shade previously the sudden move out into full sun could be the problem. They need to be hardened up gradually. Also overhead watering if your in a cooler climate. That does promote crown rot, and that results in spear pull.Check if the newer fronds will come out with a gentle pull.
