I purchased a Majesty palm tree, but didn't realize till after I repotted it, that it had lots of brown holes in some of the leaves.

Should I prune the damaged leaves or should I just return the tree for another one?

  • Hi Joseph! Now that it's been a few months since you treated your plant, I'm wondering how it's doing. If you have a minute for an update, that would be great. I hope it's healthy and happy! Apr 19, 2015 at 21:08

    @Sue unfortunately I repotted this in a wrong soil and it just went downhill. I'm planning to get another one this summer

Lowe's warranties their plants for one year from date of purchase. Go trade for another one. It's a gonner.
