Default HELP! Transplanted Christmas Palms Dying

Good day, on December 5th I transplanted 10 Christmas palms. The palms were pretty tall, about 4ft trunks and planted in the same hole depth as they originally were. Since then I've been watering once a day everyday on evenings after the sunsets. They held up pretty well with only about 2 fronds browning. After the first week I added a 2" layer on mulch to help with keeping the moisture in because it's pretty hot here in the tropics*(St. Lucia in the Caribbean). That seems to have help stop the browning and the plants appeared to be stable. I continued watering everyday same time for another week. It's the end of the second week now and I'm noticing some weird behavior where some branches are curling and leaves are turning brown from center out. Some of the plants have opened new fronds from the top and they're also growing seeds. I've noticed the soil below the mulch is still very wet when I go to water the next day. Do you think I am over watering? Could this be a sign of root rot or some other disease? The plants are planted on two opposite sides of the house and they both are showing the same signs. I've attached some images so you can see.

Smile No, you have a recently planted Christmas Palm

When you have a new palm being put into landscape, it takes time for the palm to receive its nutrients. You are going to lose about 3 more leaves before all the Christmas palm leaves look normal. Instead you could water it everyday for the first two weeks and then your Christmas palm would look amazing.

Some people even use terrasorb for easy watering and that would have worked as well. Terrasorb is the white gel like water crystals that keeps working when your not there. Its the the easiest way to keep palm alive!
