Drying up Windmill palm

poaky1February 23, 2014

I put my potted windmill palm indoors this winter. I am trying to keep it watered, and am failing at that. It needs away from the dry indoor air. Once I get it downstairs, is it likely to put out more foliage? Or even if it waits until spring/summer, will it refoliate, being that no frost/freeze damage has happened, only drying out of the spears/foliage? My basement is where I keep my houseplants all winter, with good humidity and a constant 60 ish degrees all winter.

Ah, No replies. I guess things will not be good for this palm. I will put it out in spring and protect it from hard freezes. I am hoping it will put out new fronds, since no freeze damage was done, only drying from being indoors in winter.

Yes me, it's me again. You killed this palm, buy another and put it outdoors covered and in the greenhouse next winter, okay, sounds good. Yes anyone reading this, I HAVE been drinking.
