Brown fibers on underside of kentia palm leaves?

6 years ago

Hi! I'm new to plants, and trying to familiarize myself with what's normal and what's not. We recently got a kentia palm, and I just noticed what look like little brown fibers or threads on the underside of many of the leaves ( see pics ). Is this a normal part of the plant, or something to worry about?

Overall the plant seems healthy to me, but there are a few spots on other leaves that are brown and split open ( or eaten through? ) ( See more pics ). Could this be related to the " threads ", or something else to worry about?

Thanks for any input!
