HELP: Kentia Palm Drying Out

8 years ago

Hello Everyone,

I live in Dubai and have a Kentia palm, that has started drying out on the tips of the frond leaves.

The plant is kept indoors, in bright (But never direct) sunlight. I water the plant once a week (And soil is generally moist). I have a large pot, but there is no drainage.

Over the last 2 months, the leaves have started drying out at the tips, before the frond completely dries out and dies. What's surprising is that the same time this was happening, I also got new fronds with leaves emerging.

Now it has reached a point where the plant is drying out quite fast, and I'm worried. Could it be over or under watering? Please look at the photo and give me your expert opinions!

Thanks from Dubai!
