It sounds like they are being give too much water. How often do you water them?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Once a day as they are only new
Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 11 months ago.
You are over watering them. The soil needs a chance to dry out. In the summer, you should water ever two days.
Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 11 months ago.
I don't know where you are. If you are in the Northeast, water every 5 days in the spring.
Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 11 months ago.
Also, these plants need to be fertilized. Get a slow release fertilizer and apply it once or twice in the summer when the palms are growing. Avoid applying it every month as it might overwhelm and burn your plants. Please let me know if I can help more. If you are satisfied with my answer, please rate me.
