New emerging fronds on a few of mine are doing the same, they are recovering from being seperated. Would also like an answer if possible.

Do they darken with time? if not it is time to Fertlize them with a fertilizer with a lot of micronutrients. Personally I use a Organic fertlizer that is slow realese. The organic slow realese can take some time to work so you can hit it with some fast acting fertilizer before you lay down the slow realese stuff. they love water you can so make sure to keep the soil moist at all times when the wheater is warm.

Yes. Pygmys can take some water and with that we tend to maybe flush a lot of the fertilizer as well. Hopefully newer fronds will come back to the nice green and it will out grow it

They are darkening up now that I fertilized them.   I bought the Palm at our Home Depot god only knows when it had food last...

I planted one of my roebelenii's last week, it greened up nicely! Luckily the roofers didnt almost destroy this palm, unlike my Foxtail.
