Haven't seen one looking like that before. Appears to be a well established tree. I'd say it's getting too much water. They like to be kept moist but not soggy.

RE: Robellina Palm Disease

Are you located in florida?? Then too much water is probably correct? lol gary

RE: Robellina Palm Disease

Thanks... Yes its borderline flood conditions here lately. Would it hurt to add some palm fertilizer and epsom salt?

RE: Robellina Palm Disease

Unless you resolve the water issue the fertiliser isn't likely to help.
