The following was received via email: I have a bottle palm in a very large pot that I have had for almost 15 years now. It has started sprouting small plants on the bottle part of the palm. I wanted to know if they can be removed and planted and if so how should we remove them. I don't want to hurt my large palm. If they should be removed just to help the large plant grow better. I would like any help anyone can give me as I have tried to find a site that would give me some information and I am having no luck. I live in Moreno Valley Ca. if that makes a difference as to where the palm has been growing.
