If the fronds of your queen palms look stunted or frizzled, your queen palms have a fungal infection commonly called 'Frizzle Top'. This disease is spread by rain, insects and people that trim your trees and don’t sterilize their tools properly.
A healthy tree that has all the micro nutrients it needs can fight off this infection.
Unlike most other palm trees, the queen palm mainly uses manganese in large amounts as an enzyme-activator to fight off diseases. The reason queen palms are susceptible to fungal infection is usually because there isn’t enough manganese available for the new frowns as they develop.
By regularly introducing manganese into the root system in the correct amounts (usually 12% or more), the new frowns will be more resistant to fungal infections.
Our treatment of queen palms includes soil injected fertilization with the correct amount of manganese added to the soil where the regular watering will slowly dissolve and disperse it.
In more urgent cases, it is best to also use tree injectors to get the micro nutrients directly into the tree. This will get the necessary manganese and other micro nutrients to the fawns quicker.
