Purchased 3 triple Adonidia Palms. All three are loosing trunks. Have been planted 6-8 months. Could they have a disease?

It is normal for the oldest, lowest fronds to die off and these should be cut from the plant. As long as the newer fronds look healthy and your palms are regularly putting out new fronds, they are just fine. Adonidia will adapt to most soil types but require soils with good drainage. Be sure you're not overwatering and that the roots and trunks are not sitting in standing water. Hope this information helps!
