I just received a small areca palm (about three feet high) in the mail that has some leaves showing signs of stress. Could someone help me identify the culprit? I'm wondering whether I could address the problem myself (inexperienced with Areca palms) or whether it's too diseased to salvage? If this plant is beyond repair, should I contact the nursery and try to get a healthier one?
I'm also wondering whether this palm might infect my other houseplants with scale or fungus? I have a nice pothos, aloe plant, peace lily, rosemary, cilantro, and mint in the same room.
All advice would be greatly appreciated!
