Manilla Palms

Does cutting off the seed clusters early on Manilla Palms promote more rapid replacement? The palms are on Molokai, Hawaii. Thank you.

If you cut them off very early, such as before flowering, then they're more likely to develop replacements. If seeds are forming, the plant gets signals to not produce more and you're less likely to get replacements. I want to do that with my Carpentarias, the ground around them is carpeted with seedlings. But most of the palms are too tall now to reach the clusters, even with a ladder.
