Curved Royal Palm Trunk?

Recommended Posts

PalmTreeDude

I am dying to know if anyone has ever seen a royal palm with a noticeably curved trunk. Has anyone? They always seem to be so straight upward, in some cases with the slightest curve, as far as I seen. Anyone ever seen one with a curved trunk? If so, pictures?

Someone has a triple planted here which necessitates a little bit of a curved trunk.

How big is it?

I've never seen a mature Royal triple

Triple royals can occur in the wild as well

      Hello all! So I planted my royal last year and at the time I thought it would have enough space. Currently the trunk is about 6 ft away from my home and 9 ft away from the neighbors. I also have two Mexican fans growing about 3 ft behind the brick wall.. My question is, will I run into any issues with the fronds dropping and will the mexican fans move away from the royal if the fronds get larger? 
      Thank you!

      At minute 13:43 there appears to be the fallen fronds of a royal palm. I saw nothing like that throughout the gentleman’s walk through the swamp until that point. Does anyone have any idea where this might be?

      Hello everyone, I was looking at an app called iNaturalist, which is an app that lets you post and look at observations of plants and animals around the world, and I typed in Cocos nucifera and found this post in northern Morocco by the Mediterranean Sea. Does anyone know any information about this? I thought that it would be too cool in the winter for them there.

      I have a 4' palm, I think it may be a single trunk Robelini, but not sure. About 9 months ago we moved it from the soil in a construction zone to the front of our home into a large pot with holes in the bottom. The little tree thrived for many months. Then about 45 days ago I got tired of the curved trunk and built a brace to gently straighten the trunk. Within the past two weeks, branches are dying one by one. Did I kill the tree with the brace, is it the pot, what is going on with the tree? please help. 
      Thank you
