I think my 8-foot Mexican Fan Palm may be about to experience the same fate, but, please! Say it ain't so!
When we visited New Orleans back in mid-February, my mom came by to feed Walle. And she decided to do a little yard work to "help" out. Well, two bad things happened that weekend. One - She pruned my spirea into nice, round balls. Lovely, right?
Two - She also cut back my palms. As in, she took off all of the fronds. Yes, the fronds were brown and not looking great, but I also know that the tree will continue to pull food from the fronds even as they are brown... so it has been my policy not to trim them until I see new growth popping out. After the trim, this is all I have left...
I do see some green peeking out on what is left of the fronds, so I can only hope that it has some life left in it. Does anyone have any advice about what to do? I am really at a loss. My other palm, which is only about 3 feet tall, is slowly putting out a new frond. But this one hasn't budged an inch.
