Hi. Adeline, Pheh,

The coconut palm reaches it's peak production at the age of 10-30 years. It's been said that the palm can live up to 100 yrs or more. So, Pheh, you're right about Adeline's 7 yr old palm being a juvenile still.

So, Adeline, we definitely think it's worth trying to nurture the palm back to health. Applying a systemic insecticide like carbofuran 3G (granular formulation) should keep the beetles at bay. And don't forget to fertilise it generously with fertiliser formulations with very high K.

New healthy fronds should then appear and the inflorescences should then follow too.

Good luck.

Regards,
Luke

Hi Pheh and Luke,

Thanks very much for your kind advice. I will definitely follow your advice to keep the palm and try my best to nurture it back to a healthy state. The problem is I have to rely on others during my absence but I do apply high K fertiliser regularly.
