Parlor palm
Anyone know how to fix this? Started out a little bit on the tips and slowly getting worse 🥲
Palms LOVE indirect light! Too much sunlight can scorch your plant. Make sure that the plants is also staying humid, but not soggy (avoid root rot, it will kill your plant)

I see that you live near Fort Hood (so do I!) and it’s been somewhat dry lately, so I would suggest getting a humidifier to keep it all nice and humid!

Also, don’t forget that palms like to be watered once every 1-2 weeks, so check the leaves on it, if you’re unsure of when to water!

I would move the location of the palm to a place that it could get some indirect sunlight!
My plant was doing the same and after some research I came to the conclusion that I've been watering it too much but I'm not completely sure 😅 Interested to see what others say about that 👁️
@JuicyPotato that looks like a Majesty Palm to me.

Both too much and too little water will damage palms and will lead to leaf yellowing, browning, and potentially plant death. Palms thrive in evenly moist soils that are neither dry nor wet and soggy. Allow the soil surface to dry out before watering, use the finger test to see if additional water is required.

Just cut off any fronds as they turn yellow or brown. If you cut the fonds off make sure to use sterilized scissors by using rubbing alcohol to sterilize them first. Doing so improves the look of your plants and creates a clean space for more fronds to grow.

Brown tips and leaf edges may be a response to low humidity. Dry air during the heating season is fairly common. Increase humidity with a humidifier or by adding stone-filled trays beneath the pots and keeping the stones covered with water. Excess fertilizer also causes tip browning.

You can always mist your plant daily as I do. Plus I have a humidifier around mine as well.
I have no luck with any palm. All the best!
Fertilizer, misting and we’ll draining soil! I’ve never had luck with these guys inside. They love to be outside and thrive the best there
