bismark palm problem
My problem has to do with the new shoots emerging. The palm has been in the ground for 3 years now in the same spot and left alone to do it's thing. I rarely check on it until recently I noticed the new shoots are dying. There is one that tried to open, but was only able to open looking like a burnt and stunted shoot. While it moved to the side, the new shoot coming out is still a closed shoot but already showing signs of problem. The tip of it looks burnt and almost appears to be rotting or decaying. I do have a drip system which I removed for the time being thinking excessive water might be the culprit. I live in Central Florida were dry season is still on. I know its the season for little or no rain, but its been 90s consistently and we are super dry. What seems to be the problem?
