new areca palm problem
I am just south of San Diego and recently got an Areca palm for outside near the entry. It looked beautiful when I first got it and now it's going down hill.
I've been watering it well, I sprinkled slow-release fertilizer with micros.
The problem I think is that I put it into a big pot with soil I purchased from guy selling dirt in a pick up truck. I wasn't thinking and purchased it and it has a lot of non-broken-down plant material which I know is bad as it can rob nitrogen.
The pictures aren't that great but I don't know if you can if it's a nutrient deficiency, or damage from cold. I don't think it's damage from cold because it never got below 40 degrees when I first got it and now we never dip below 50s at night. Can that low still cause "damage"?
If it doesn't seem to get better, I'm gonna have to get some palm and cactus mix and replant it and hopefully coming into summer it will improve.
