There is an old myth among gardeners about trimming palm trees so they "grow quicker". Some say that cutting the lower leaves of the tree results in a higher trunk. Do NOT do it. If you want to enjoy your palm tree for a long time only cut the dried, yellow leaves and be careful not to cut too close to the trunk so you don't actually hurt the newly forming leaves.
- That's done! Don't forget to water and give it some fertilizer.
