    It is really impossible to say what the problem is without a photo. Leaf spots on palms are often fungal in origin, but a potassium deficiency can cause yellow spotting as well. If your palms are on a regular fertilizer regimen (which is important because palms need a variety of micronutrients), the cause is more likely to be fungal.

    I will try the fertilizer regimen, I tend to forget to do that...Probably why my red leaf banana tree is not so red also.

      @Amanda B Make sure you use a fertilizer specifically formulated for palms. The inclusion of micronutrients is important.
