    my pygmy date palms new leaves are drying out or turning brown does this mean there's no chance of survival?

    Indoors most likely it's dieing (typically Spider Mite.).
    Planted outdoors there's a chance it'll recover.
    Dates are very tolerant of low humidity which why they're
    popular in desert climates.

    The leaf damage could be due to low humidity levels.
