Technically, you could, but I don't bother.  This is one of those palm species that likes when I ignore it as much as possible.  Can you post a picture of what you mean by frayed?

oh sure its in the ground outside and has no attention whatsoever i mean i water it after transplant and I made mini greenhouses out of clear boxes in the backyard and i dont water those bc they have LOTS of moisture in there. you can see the water inside of them.

This is one of my two that I grew from RPS seeds. They are four years old now. They really started picking up speed when I planted them in the ground. They were planted out when about a year and a half old. Full sun from the start and have been doing well ever since.

This one is the same age, but I moved it twice which stunted it's growth.

Wow, those look great, they usually look terrible in humidity. I have 3 in 15 gallon containers I will eventually use.

The green 'variety' turns blue in summer and the blue 'variety' turns green in winter:lol:

Mine green theo started turning bluish in the past 6 weeks or so.

@Laaz do yours get graphiola leaf spot?  Mine has it pretty bad on the lower leaves but only noticeable up close.  How often do you have to trim the suckers on yours?

Man Laaz, yours look great. I'm always tempted when I see them, but then I remember the two thorns from my deceased CIDP that lodged in my big toes.

I also wonder how they'd do here long-term... CIDPs in Houston are all living on borrowed time. P. sylvestris seems solid, but I've seen regular date palms also dying from what appears to be a fungal illness.
