I'm having all kinds of palm issues lately. Just got home to notice this new frond on my licuala looking very unhealthy. There is 6 inches of new spear following behind.
And I noticed fungus on the lower half of the trunk and some of the roots. Green in areas, white in others. Are these two issues related and what should I do?
All of the Licuala I’ve grown or acquired, can thrive in a pot, for what seems forever. These two in particular have been in the same pot for at least three years now and look great. L. ramsayii is another one that that had a long life in a container and always looked fantastic. Root bound….no problem.
First one is L. grandis.
The second two are L. lauderbachii.
Hello, complete beginner here so I apologize if this questions sound stupid.
I have licuala grandis I purchased last july, and the store I bought said you need to replant in next April or so I have questions about that. Living in Ankara, Turley.
1 - I have some browning/yellowing on the tips only, can I do something about that? What is the probable reasons for that?
2 - My current pot is 25 cm in diameter, so I was thinking getting 35cm in diamater?
3 - Any special kind of soil mixture I need to use for this palm?
4 - Should I use any fertiziler after repotting?
5 - Any advice in general how to take care of better?
Thank you kindly for your answers.

I've been wanting to go out and take photos since New Years but have been recovering from major surgery. I'm up and around for now and have decided to do a photo layout of some of the palm seedlings I've grown from seeds over the past couple years. The list is not comprehensive and includes a Dypsis and Cham turckheimii I bought rather than germinated. Most everybody has seen photos of mature palms but few of us have seen them as small seedlings or juveniles.
1. Ptychosperma sp 'Cartegna'
2. Dypsis ifanadianae w/heel
3. Drymophloeous oliviformis
4. Ptychosperma microcarpum
5. Chamaedorea alternans
6. Ptychosperma unk sp Australia
7. Chamaedorea tuerckheimii
8. Cyphophoenix elegans
9. Howea forsteriana
10. Licuala fordiana
11. Licuala lauterbachii
12. Pinanga maculata
13. Hydriastele dransfieldii
14. Carpoxylon macrospermum
15. Chamaedorea geoniformis
16. Brassiophoenix schumannii
17. Areca catechu dwarf x Areca macrocalyx
18. Chamaedorea arenbergiana variegated
My licuala seems to be struggling. The leaves are turning brown even on the new growth. I live in Central Mexico where the average humidity ranges between 25 and 60%. Am I not watering/misting the leaves frequently enough? Any advice would be appreciated
