Tips of the leaves will dry and start turning brown. Check the moist level of the soil the next day after watering. You can use your fingers to measure soil moist levels by placing them 3″ into the soil.
Or you can use an electronic soil moister meter. It provides accurate, easy to read results. If it shows you that soil is too dry, you need to water more often.
During hot dry season, deep watering technique works the best. Basically, instead of dumping a lot of water at once, you slow drip it over extended period of time. That way, roots have more time to absorb the water. This is especially important for newly planted palms that don’t have an established root system yet.
If possible, install a sprinkler system and put it on schedule.
