Hi all, can anyone help?
I have a cocos palm (not as nice as some of the photos on the website).
Whe I bought it had a tree and a few leaves growing out upright of the cocos base, but not it the tree is falling on a side (I have to keep it against the wall to stand upright), like if it is not fully attached to the base anymore.
I am not sure if it is broken - outer leaves are now dry and faded, but the main one in the middle is still green, and there is a new one growing...
But in last few weeks it looks much worse than when I bought it a few months ago, I am worried it will die out if I don't do something.
I was thinking to put it in a bigger pot and fully burry the cocos base, but looking at some pictures I'm not sure if it is a good idea...
Can anyone advise what to do, and how to take care of it in general?
Thanks in advance, really appreciate any comments.

Welcome to Garden Guides. I don't know much about palms. If you could copy and paste your question in the Trees and Shrubs section in the Forums, I'm sure that our resident tree afficianado, Ryan, can give you some suggestions.
