Need Help With Coconut Palm

Mr. Coconut Palm

Recommended Posts

I need help identifying a problem with a young Coconut Palm I have that I sprouted from a nut I collected on the beach at Padre Island, Texas a couple of years ago.  It is a green variety of some sort, and is about 3 feet tall in overall height.  It looked really good last year, so much so that it was one of the most beautiful Coconut Palms I had at the time, but it slowed down its growth in the last few months.  Recently, just in the last 2 to 3 weeks, the second newest leaf has turned VERY YELLOW with burned brown edges on the leaf, as if the leaf was freeze burned recently, but the weather has been very warm late spring weather, and it was not exposed to freezing temps over the winter.  It is in a 3 gal. pot, and I have kept it watered and fertilized it twice over the last few months.  Unfortunately, I can't upload any photos of it here, but can text photos to someone on Messenger, or on their cell number.  Thanks.
