Hmm... I'd definitely get her out of that pot and check her roots first off! I know she was dehydrated, but I can see a bit of white mould on the surface of the soil which suggests it's not draining properly and it's best to rule out root rot now! Plus, I agree with you and Kaitlin @FitJubileeivy) I think a spell in water might help her out, let her establish some new healthy roots and then you can put her into some fresh soil and hopefully you'll see some new growth at some point 🀞🀞πŸ₯° xxx
I think that’s a good idea. Or maybe she needs new soil
Thanks so much I'll get her out the pot now and see what state her roots are in poor baby I was wondering what that white mould was I really want to save her I have a another palm plant I've had years I've just given her a shower she was quite dusty 😱
Thanks πŸ‘πŸΌ I'm getting her out the pot now I'll let you know how she gets on 🀞🏼
Please do Caroline I'm keeping everything crossed!! 🀞🀞 Btw if you get a bit of that mould on your topsoil in future (but aren't wired about root rot or too muchoustute generally) a wee sprinkle of ground cinnamon will totally get rid of it! πŸ₯° It's a natural fungicide, totally safe for your plants, your pets, your kids etc.. and it smells lovely! πŸ˜‚πŸ₯°

But defo let me know how you get on!! I brought a fishtail palm back from this kinda condition so all is not lost! πŸ’ͺπŸ€©πŸ˜‚ Xxx
I tagged you in my parlour palm post where I brought mine back to life.
Hope it helps
Mold will grow around any dead plant debris so remove then treat with some type of fungicide 😊🌱🀞🏼
I'm so sorry I missed this message thanks I'll try that I do have cinnamon in at all times the hubby has it on porridge 🀣She's in water just now I'll get more soil perlite mix and try again with her I don't like seeing Ailing plants 😞 have a great evening πŸ’š
Thank you πŸ‘πŸΌ I've just seen your parlour palm looking fantastic 😍πŸͺ΄well done bringing her back I'll keep trying with my Lola poor baby she wouldn't be in this state if the store had watered her
