Indoor palm plant sprouting seeds

Asked January 24, 2019, 5:57 PM EST

The indoor palm tree I have been growing for about 5 years is starting to put out seed branches - right now there are about 8 branches. What does this mean? Should I leave them alone, or cut them out?

Thank you for your question. Your palm sprouting seeds means it is healthy and ‘doing what comes naturally.’ When the seeds are ripe, they will drop from the seed pods, like other plants. You can propagate new palms from them. Here is an article: https://hgic.clemson.edu/factsheet/indoor-palms/ Good luck!
