RE: Need help and advice for Palm tree

You don't say where you come from, which could be a big clue, because this plant looks as if it suffering from lack of light. Palms (and there are more than 100 different kinds so I'm not sure exactly what we are dealing with here) are, as I'm sure you know, mostly tropical plants. That means they need plenty of 1.light 2. warmth 3.water. Given your plant's debilitated condition I wouldn't start watering it frantically, however, just let it get going a bit first. Move it somewhere a bit more, well...tropical. Good luck. Ian.
