Dear Don Burke,

I have a travelers Palm, I grown it from seed which I got in Madagascar. I am leaving in the UK. Something bad is happing to it and I don’t understand what is it and what should I do?
Would you be so kind to have a look on pictures and give me any recommendations?
Is it dying?

It was perfectly healthy 3 weeks ago and it was outside on a balcony. I removed palm indoor, thought it was too cold for it when i noticed illness, but leaves one by one are continuing became yellow and dry.. It’s my favourite plant I have..

Thank you very much,

Sorry Mila, I live in Sydney Australia and it is way too cold here for Traveller’s palm. No traveller’s palm could ever grow outdoors in London. Even indoors in London it would struggle. Maybe move to Cairns Australia??? Don
