pygmy date palms dying

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

Re: pygmy date palms dying

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.

Re: pygmy date palms dying

The leaf damage could be due to low humidity levels.
