I certainly would change the soil asap,, Make sure your NEW pot has plenty of drainage,,, you can get miracle grow soil for palms/ citrus trees, and add some humus to the soil if you want. They are heavy feeder, so 20-20-20 would be good for your palm.. It's probably starving for nutrients make SURE you Don't get the miracle grow with extra added moisture retainer,,
and get the soil for INDOOR Palms
, NOT OUTSIDE Palm soil,
IF you're going to keep it in the house, be sure to boost up the humidity. Either place a humidifier near it or an Indoor fountain near it, You can also spritz it daily but remember that is temporary humidity , unless you want to spritz it every couple of hours,,
IF there is not enough humidity you risk the chance of spider mites and they suck the juice out of leaves, and Fronds will come out curled, yellow and never open,.
and eventually hurt the entire palm. Tips of the plant growing
curled, yellowing, and dropping is a tell tale sign.
IF you want to take it outside during the growing
season, remember where it was when you moved in, and place it there, it must have done well there.
I don't know exactly the name of the palm you have, as some plants require FULL sun while most like indirect light,
When you repot it,, upon the first watering,just keep watering it until the water stays in, because at first the water will run straight out, just water until the soil holds the water But DON"T let it SIT in water. IF you put your new pot inside of another Pot make sure the outter pot also has drain holes, you don't want any water standing in the larger pot. On your second watering if the soil feel dry down to your second knuckle on your index finger then water again with the 20-20-20 .Continue the 20-20-20 with every third watering during the growing
season, in the winter slow your watering to once a month and stop with the 20-20-20 until spring
, usually fertilize april thru september only and Up the humidity since the heat would be on.
Never place a palm near a ac/heater vent, as it will dry it out, thus risking spider mites . I have found Spider mites like to attack when plants that require humidity are allowed to dry out,, I've lost many a plants until I was told about spider mites
Keep us Updated on how your Palm is doing,, Hopefully a nursery near you, or home depot, lowes etc, will have the palm/citrus soil you should have for her?/ Him? :wink:
