1 How do I know if my plant is dead?
Leaf drop is not a sign of a dead or dying plant, and it is not uncommon for plants to lose leaves during periods of transition, whether that’s transitioning to a new home or from season to season. To determine if a plant is still alive, scratch a trunk or stem at the base of the plant with something sharp like a coin or your fingernail. If the tissue below is green-tinged and damp, your plant is alive and will continue to sprout new fronds. If it is difficult to scratch, and only shows signs of dried black or brown tissue below, the plant is dead.
