I purposely left the older fronds on my Trachys last year because it's easier than cutting off all the dead/ugly fronds every year and I think skirts look good .
Should I be patient and let the skirts form over the years , or cut off the dead /ugly fronds , or leave the skirts on some and have the clean look on others ? Right now the clean look looks better but after a few more years of skirt the skirted palms might look good too .
The ugly fronds from the year before last year left on :
The cleaner look :
It would be cool to have them have this sort of effect one day :
