Help with Needle

Hi everyone,

    I uncovered my Needle about 6 weeks ago.  When I did it was looking nice and green.  Since then it has been browning from the tips back.  Is this a delayed winter frost reaction or fungus? Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Did it get any water or moisture over winter?  If mine run dry they will get the brown tips. I see others in cold zones with needles unwrapping them and watering them during the winter

could also be a little delayed cold damage. The tips always show it first it seems.

@Chester B It got no water for about 4 months this winter.  It’s just strange to me that they were fine when unwrapping.

Probably a little cold damage. It often shows up in spring. 
 

Another possibility is it went from shade to sun. Did you ease it in to accepting full sun. I know if you take an inside palm and stick it outside in the sun it will get browning.

I think something is wrong.  What are the white dots in the photos?  Are these on the undersides of fronds?  I would check new spears and if they look ok and don't pull or have damage i'd leave alone.  I'm thinking moisture in shade causing fungus or a bug problem.  Or something happened during your protection method which was???

The leaves are definitely in rough shape try potting it up and putting it in a more protected area .
