When my date palm was installed it had a few of these things around the edge of the trunk. Are they stunted fronds? Should I remove them? The palm itself is healthy and appears to be growing well.

  • How long since you had the plant installed?

I have a date palm I grew from pits and sometimes see this. The fronds open up and look fine after a while. Just keep up with your normal watering if it is dry as I find date palms are thirsty
