Help! New Kentia Palm is dying!
My husband and I bought this palm a week or two ago and it is not doing well. We transplanted it to a new pot the day we got it. I think that it is a kentia palm, but I am not 100% sure, so please let me know if it is not. I looked up care instructions from several websites and I can't determine if I am over watering or under watering the plant. The general consensus was that if you under water, the plant appears droopy and the tips of the fronds turn brown and that if you are over water the plant the leaves turn yellow and then brown.
My plants seems to be doing all of these things!! It looks droopy, some leaf tips are brown right away and some turn yellow, then brown. One new frond has turn a very ugly brown, but other new ones appear to be doing okay...for now.I determined that the plant was getting too much direct sunlight, so I moved it to a bright corner of the house where it receives indirect sunlight. Is the plant still recovering from too much sun? Does it need a certain type of soil or fertilizer?
We have no experience with indoor house plants and are asking if anyone can look at the photos and let us know what they think the problem is. We want to catch it asap so that we don't kill this plant! It wasn't the cheapest of plants. Please help!!!! Thanks!
