    Hello all,

    Just bought a house and these palm trees are planted outside. Recently they started turning brown and have this green type of fungus on it. I’m in broward Florida if anyone has any suggestions it would be a huge help.

    Thank you

    The challenge for someone like me who doesn't live in Florida is that there are apparently a number of new pathogens / pests attacking Florida palms in recent years. If no one steps forward here soonish, call Broward County extension--they'll have up to date information on what is happening locally with respect to palm pathogens:

    Your Palm looks like Phoenix roebelinii or a hybrid thereof. I'm not sure what disease this may be.
