Default Majesty leaves turned white.

Title of post should read Majesty palms.
Planted it a couple weeks ago. Weather has been mostly overcast, not much sunlight, then the storms hit, lots of water. Night time temps have been in the 40s. I'm guessing that the leaves are dying due to not enough sun. I'm OK with that, it'll recover, I just want to make sure it's not due to anything else.

Default Re: Majesty leaves turned white.

with a majesty palm it could be anything..i stopped messing with them because they drew too many mites in the winter when i had to bring them inside. they are also very picky..i found that queen palms are easier to deal with and grow better for me. .. im sure that there are plenty of expert majesty palm growers who may want to ad something sooner or later.

sorry i cant help much

When I first read your post, the first thing I thought was spider mites, but then I saw you were growing it outside, not indoors. While that, in and of itself, doesn't necessarily rule out spider mites, they are usually most troublesome indoors. What I noticed was that it is the lowermost leaf on your plant which has turned brown. As the lowest leaf, it is also the oldest, and therefore likely that leaf has just died. This is a perfectly normal thing and as the plant gets older, you'll likely see the lowest, oldest leaves die off as the reach the end of their useful lifespan. Nothing to worry about unless you see it start to happen at an accelerated rate or to other leaves higher in the canopy.
