Symptoms in Chamaedorea elegans, Phoenix roebelenii, Caryota mitis, Chrysalidocarpus lutescens and Howea forsterana, described, resemble those reported for larger spp. such as coconuts and oil palms. Micronutrient deficiencies were almost indistinguishable from one another and could be correctly diagnosed only by leaf elemental analysis. Deficiency symptoms took 6-15 months to be expressed and palms recovered slowly or not at all.
