Yellowing/black spots on small California Palm

9 years ago

Hey everyone, I'm pretty new to palm trees and about 2 months ago I bought these 2 small, California fan palms. As you can see in the pictures, one of the leaves is starting to develop yellowing and some black spots. The yellowing and black spotting is only happening to one of the palms.

One mistake I might have made was I added 2-3 teaspoons of palm "food" 12-4-12, to both the palms. Although, if this were the case, both of them would have showed signs of yellowing/black spots instead of just the one shown. They're of course watered regularly and the soil is kept fairly moist but not wet. Very humid down here in SC.
