What is this plant and why is it dying?
Hi, this is my first time posting here. I've had this plant for probably 8 years. I don't know what it's called so haven't been able to google any research to find out what's wrong with it. If you can tell me what the name of the plant is, that would be great. The plant has been in the same pot in the same place and receiving the same care for 5 years. Actually, it was repotted about 8 years ago when I got it. A few years ago it was getting so big and top heavy that I finally had to string it up with fishing wire to keep it from spilling out into the room. Recently (maybe the last 6 months?) the plant seems to be dying. It's lost A LOT of fronds (it used to be much fuller) and some of the stems are just shriveling and dying altogether. One of the stems where the fronds fell off is just dry and hollow now. You may be able to see in the picture that the uppermost sprout of fronds is yellowing and I fear that's the next to go. This plant has very special meaning to me and I'd be very sad if it dies. Does anyone have any idea what is wrong with it or what I might be able to do to save it? Thanks!
