Looks like a neglected Ravanea rivularis.

Thank you guys! Would you say it is lacking in some nutrients?

It is a water and fertilizer hog.

Would the basic fertilizer work or does it need a specific one?

Palms can't read... Any fertilizer at this point (and lots more water) would help green it up.

agreed. Any time you see " Rivularis" (river in latin) you can count on it being a water hog.

Ravanea rivularis seems to always be in a state of deficiency around my area.  They are notorious for sensitivity to deficiency, maybe the worst of commonly available palms.

I have 1 of those 2 gallon HD Ravenea houseplants that we planted outdoors between 2 houses a few years ago.It only gets an hour or two of direct sun (still a little too much) and plenty of water,and seems to be doing better than I expected it would.Planted too close to the neighbors house, and probably will have to remove it at some point, but am really enjoying it for now.

looks great, one of my favorites. what generally happens when a palm is planted to close to a house will the trunk just bend gradually?

From wht I gave seen, even washies, when planted too close against a structure, will distance themselves from it. It's as if they have eyes.

True story.

Majesty palms are maniacs when it comes to their need for magnesium. I'd get a palm specific fertilizer like PalmGain and add Epsom salts (Magnesium sulfate) at the rate of one cup per palm in addition to the amount of palm fertilizer recommends.

Thanks Jim!! I informed my cousin of this :). Also is it magnesium sulfate or maganese sulfate?

Magnesium. Just go to the drugstore and buy a bag of Epsom salts. :)

      My Needle Palm (Rhapidophyllum hystrix) is finally flowering! I won’t get any seed off of it (if it is a female, I’m still not sure what it is yet and don’t know how to tell) because I only have one and there are none close by that I know of. But it is still really cool, and is my first palm to ever flower!

      Hi everyone 
      this is my first ever post and this is my first ever palm! I bought it a month and a half ago and it was lovely and green. 
       
      fast forward 6/8 weeks it’s very unhappy. Any tips on how to revive it- if I can revive it?! 
       
      i didn’t water it much as I thought it was a desert palm. (I’m U.K. based but we didn’t have much rain.) I’ve since learnt it likes moist soil so have been watering more. Is this the correct thing to do? 
       
      desperately want to save it! Also have given it slow release fertiliser to try and help. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

      What are some palms with fat crownshafts (and trunks, I'm assuming)? I have seen some pictures of Rhopalostylis sapida with fat crownshafts as well as pictures of Dypsis decipiens. Are there any more palms that get large crownshafts? Any pictures?
