I just discovered I have spider mites on my third Majesty Palm.

Well if this isn't turning out to be a crummy week.

Here's some info I found. Maybe it'll help??


Watering of the Majesty Palm is crucial. The plant must have proper drainage set up. Do not allow the roots to sit in water. On the other end, do not allow the plant to dry out completely in between waterings either. This palm also prefers a slightly higher humidity level, so a daily misting will add plenty of beauty to your plant.

If the foliage tips begin turning brown, you are probably under watering the plant. Try watering it more often. On the other hand, if the foliage tips begin turning yellow, you may be over watering it.

A common pest to this plant is spider mites. If problems with pests appear, try misting the plant with a soapy water mixture twice a day. If spider mites still appear try a more powerful spray available from your local gardening store.

Yeah I just had her in the shower. That usually kills them little buggers. But daaaayyyyamn you'd be surprised how much damage they can do in a short time. I think it's localized to one frond though so it'll probably survive until it's scheduled death in about 8 months.
