Morning walk into the jungle and, ouch, here is one of my Clinostigma samoense. It was fine the day before, like its siblings in the background. There was no wind, no heavy rain overnight. The trees are about 12 years old. I don't recall seeing insect damage or nutrient deficiency. I have seen Alexander palms here in East Hawaii have a complete crown lean-over -- tho not a collapse like this -- which I think is nutrient-related. Do any of you more experienced palm growers have idea what might have caused this?
Looking for recommendations on palm rich botanical gardens or other palmy public spots on Oahu. Staying on the north shore for a week this month and will have some free time to explore the island. Thanks!

I am looking for a Socratea exorrhiza. Preferably a plant but might be interested in seeds as well.
This is a scary parasitic condition
