I am not sure this is the correct place to ask this question or not, but here goes. My 20 year old palm was killed in the Dallas Snowpocalypse of 2021. I just replaced it this Spring (March) with a new Windmill. It looked pretty good for a month or two, but as we got into the hot part of Dallas Summer, it has really struggled with severely browning frowns. I read that you are not supposed to cut of brown frowns until they are 100% brown, so I have followed that guidance. I have fed it some Palm food a couple of times. I suspect that I am over or underwatering. I just don’t know which it is and hoping for some help from someone before it dies. I have pics I can send if you let me know where/how.
Thank you in advance,
