I've bought a few Wodyeta Bifurcata "Foxtail Palm" seedlings and everything seemed to be well but then the fronds color started becoming lighter. It keeps growing and shooting spears but a lighter color.
I am not sure if it is from • Overwatering • Underwatering • Disease • Nutrient deficiency.
If anybody can help out with some tips or approach as to this situation would be greatly appreciated. See pictures below:
My mom is simplifying her plant collection and gave me two of what I think are parlor palms. My dad had accidentally put them directly into the sun after a long winter, so they did get sunburnt... but you know, that can be dealt with.
We discovered after the fact, though, that they have huge amounts of SCALE. She’d had no idea and feels terrible.
What do you think, are these past help? If not, is it safe to trim off the worst branches and then use Dawn on the rest over the course of a few weeks? If so, should I quarantine them away from my other plants, since I so far do not have scale in my own garden? Idk how readily it spreads outside. Or do we just toss both of the trees?
Here are my quick snaps:
(Also, I have no idea what the black is)

Can anybody tell me what is killing my palms? I've lost a few like this in the last few years. I would really like to try to save this one as it's part of a set along the road, and have a remedy for future. I've lost Royal Caribbean Palms like this one and Champagne palms. They show clear signs of distress as fronds grow poorly and bunch up, crown starts to grow narrower and wither like this one. There's what appears to be rot at the top of the trunk at the crown. They seem to rot out inside. I don't see any obvious signs of infestation. If you have any ideas I'd sure appreciate it.
Thank you so much!
Can anyone tell me the type of disease that have infected my Chamaerops Humilis, and give me an advise on what to order online to control the pest? It is a kind of mite, that I can tell. Very small ones, making a fine web and sucking from the leaves, which have become all grey. After taking theese pictures, I put the palm in the shower to literally wash and flush off the mites, and cut off the worst looking leaves, hoping the palm will get new energy not having to feed to many of the mites at the same time as growing.
I also have some palms with another type of scale/mite , if anyone have a good suggestion to a good treatment (systemic?) which is harmless to the palms, please tell me.
I also want to share my method which is probably unusual but quite effective. If a palm is infected by exterior pest, one might (optionally) spray soapy water on all infected surfaces, and after a while flush off using a pressure washer. Palm leaves are stiff and hard and tolerate pressure washing, just start at some distance and go closer to find out what pressure the leaves can take without tearing up. I find the method great, but it doesn't cope with pests inside the leaves or stems.

I am brand new to the site and am hoping to find some help. Hopefully I am doing this right!! I have had these palms in my life for a little over 3 years and the winter freeze this year hit Southern Louisiana hard. When I purchased the home (3 years ago) these 2 palms were infested with a beetle and were treated. The previous owner had the jasmine ground cover thick and crawling up the base of the trees which I immediately cut down upon purchase. There was definitely insect damage on the trunk of the tree further out in the pic. After the freeze I noticed brown liquid running down the trunk of one tree, which seems to continue to get worse and has flies associated with it. No green from the top yet. The tree closer in pic seems to be doing well but the other day I noticed a streak of brown liquid running down the trunk. I have had 2 (yes 2!) arborists out and neither called me back or returned my calls. (Sorry pics aren't the greatest!). Any thoughts or advice sincerely appreciated!!!
