Please help with Mexican Palms.....

We have five Mexican Palms planted in full sun (all day) that we planted in Sept-October. All were very healthy when we planted, but now look like they are taking a beating. We've tried BT (bad inch worm problems), palm food and fish emulsion. Thank you in advance!!

Hi what kind of palm food are U feeding it? how much sun does it get, it looks like it is in the middle of your yard. The best place to look is www.treehelp.com you might have a potassium or magnesium def. Try this website it might answer some questions.
Hope this helps.
