  1. @andrewmorrison85 – Some plants will yellow with too much water – you need to google to find out where the plant comes from. A cactus will rot from too much water and a plant growing in a lake would dry up very quickly in the desert.

  2. @chuckzamzow Thank you very much for the tip, I hope it works. I guess the advice I've heard from some are false that with too much water the palm will yellow. If it's soaked it would be yellow everywhere immediately!

  3. A lot of people buy cat palms and majesty palms – both of these grow in swamps in their native habitat and the last time I checked swamps had water – I personally grow both of these palms in water – you can also set the plant in a tub and always keep about 2 inches of water in the tub.
