Hi! My palm tree used to be super happy, even sprouted palm flowers and everything. It's always had a bit of an issue with crispy tips, but I feel like it's gotten worse lately, and all the new growth lately I've had just never unfurls. Haalp!

Never had palm plants before. Here is some info I looked up for you…
There is a wide range of potential causes for the fronds to yellow, and most of them are either interrelated or have the same symptoms.

~Compacted or Poor Soil.

~Fertilizer Burns

~Pest Infestations

~ Improper Watering Habits

~Lack of Nitrogen or Potassium in the Soil.

~Lethal Yellowing (disease)

~ Magnesium and Manganese Deficiency in Soil

~ Mineral Buildup (Copper & Salts) in Soil

~ Root Rot (Bacterial or Fungal Strains) from Overwatering.

~ Sunburn (Sun Scorch) from too much sunlight.

~ Inaccurate living temperature for ferns (Ferns like indoor temperature of 65°F and 75°F. Exposure to drafts, or excessive heat for too long periods can kill the fronds turning them yellow, then brown.)
Here is the article I found this information from…

Hope this information helps you! Good Luck!
Also, I'm not 100% sure if it's an Areca palm, I was only told that my uncle grew it from a seed from the San Diego Zoo
Oh my goodness palms are tuff to maintain especially if indoor🥹, I’ve struggled with my palm although I’ve had to cut off almost the entire tree😰😰… I just recently put started putting it under a growing light hopefully it’ll help. I literally had to cut most of the stems away bc they were dying 🫣😢. If you find any helpful tips pls share. Thanks
This hurts so bad looking at the before pics😭😭😭😭
Thanks guys! I might start with a soil revamp
