Licuala new leaf wrinkled and dry


Recommended Posts

I'm having all kinds of palm issues lately. Just got home to notice this new frond on my licuala looking very unhealthy.  There is 6 inches of new spear following behind.





And I noticed fungus on the lower half of the trunk and some of the roots.  Green in areas, white in others.  Are these two issues related and what should I do?

Any thoughts on this? Can I spray copper fungicide on the trunk to kill the mold?

Got a ton of rain from the storm, so it's watered now.  Maybe the next one will be normal.

I'd squirt some hydrogen peroxide into the crown to see if it bubbles up.  Grandis is super sensitive to drying out, so that might be part of it.  I have been doing Daconil + hydrogen peroxide in the crown of possible crown fungal infections.  That was from a recommendation from someone here.  Another possible treatment is Mancozeb.  I don't know that it has a crown infection, but it is possible.  I don't know if the trunk fungus is important or not, but it does seem odd.  If there is a sprinkler hitting it, that could explain the mold.
