I just got a parlor palm from the nursery last week, and placed it in a low-light area in the house, and no watering, since the soil seemed moist at the nursery. Many of the larger leaves of the plant have turned brown within a week, and the glossy look of the leaves seems to be gone. It's still in the growbag from nursery, haven't yet gone round to potting it. What is going wrong?enter image description hereenter image description hereenter image description here


This plant is too wet. Chances are good it is sitting in water.

  • move to high light
  • remove from gro pot and transplant to a pot with drainage holes
  • do not add stones or any other material to the bottom of the pot
