The Q&A Archives: Seca Palms

Question: We have 2 12 year old seca palms. They both have grown these orange/pink egg shaped balls that are growing in the center of the tree. One of the trees has branches, and the other one has not. (we cut them to get new growth) They both are re-plants. Should we take them out, keep them and treat them?

Answer: Believe it or not, palms develop flowers which can develop seeds. I think your mature palms have developed seed pods. You can leave them alone, or cut them off. Palms are sometimes difficult to start from seed, but if you decide to allow the seed pods to mature, you can try sowing the seeds to see if they'll germinate.
