Hi my first posting here. I have two large palms in tubs. This year I noticed new growth from the top that looks more like a Xmas tree than new fonds. Is this Normal ?

Flowering a possibility. Do you know the name of your palms? Also, photos will be helpful but you have to have ten posts before you can upload pics.

Not sure of exact type of palm as I’ve had them for many years. The fonds are quite broad and looking at pictures are similar to « cabbage palm » type

cabbage palm usually refers to cordyline which is not a palm at all
or Sabal palmento they are both quite different to each other.
The cordyline as strap like leaves whilst the sabal as palm like fronds
