    Here are some pictures of a plant I've had for a little over a year that has been dying since I purchased it. I've also included pictures of the trouble areas so you can see what I'm battling.

    First off, I'm not sure it's a palm [I'm rather new at this whole plant thing], but process of elimination is telling me it is. I'd like to find out the name, so that I can save it.


    Any assistance provided would be greatly appreciated! =)

    Thank you !

    It's hard to tell - they both look very close, but they are healthy, so that totally throws me off =)

    I'll start there, and see what I come up with.

    Again, thank you!

    It's a parlor plam. They do quite well indoors. It doesn't look that bad to me. Try some fertilize (Dynomite 18-6-8 slow release) and keep it watered and make sure it gets some sunlight.
