sick windmill palm

sick windmill palm
Posted by Jackie Johnson from Michigan/5? on 2008-12-29 01:47:00

I have a potted windmill palm I brought back from Alabama last winter. I was fine in the house until the weather got warm and then I put in outside. All summer it was a happy palm, growing well and healthy.This fall I brought it in the house and it seemed just fine. About a month later I noticed spider mites and started to wipe it with a damp paper towel to remove them. Soon after the ends of the leaves truned dark. And then the leaves curled up and dried out. Did I over fertilize it or what? I really like this little tree! Please can anyone help me? Jackie
