Will this coconut palm survive?

Hi guys. Does this coconut palm have a chance to put out a leaf yet? I overdid it 2 weeks ago. The roots are thick and healthy. She looked like this before.

There is still a very slim chance that it may push out a new green leaf spike if the growing conditions are perfect, but I'd say shes gone.

So, why are the roots in such good condition?

Root tissue generally doesn't decay fast, you could run the top part through a shredder and the roots would be in “good condition” Also root decay is highly variable and not well understood, usually they rot with the aid of external pathogens, fungi and enzymes.

I checked and indeed the roots are starting to rot. I threw away the coconut palm. Pity. Thank you for your advice. Topic to be closed.
