Pour some hydrogen peroxide down the hole the spear pulled from. Let it sit for a couple hours then turn the plant over to drain any water from the hole. You can repeat this procedure two or three times. Keep irrigation and rain water out of the hole so it stays dry until the new spear appears. You can also pour fungicide down the hole and then follow the rest of the advice.

Yeah thats rot, probably fungi. Spray copper fungicide into the spear cavity. I got a similar problem but with one outside, the c9 lights burned the spear area, so they died off, but it should recover with the copper fungicide sprayed into it. Im going to put some hydrogen peroxide in mine later this week.

I have several young trachycarpus and usually have 10 or so a year. I treat them with copper fungicide or hydrogen peroxide once a week for at least 3 weeks. Usually don't take long for a new spear to appear. Seems like as they get older the more resistance they become.

I had two spears and two fronds pull a couple days ago. No mushy trunk though, and I have to treat with peroxide.

Trachys are the one of the easier ones to recover from spear pull. I have 2 that I am nursing back to health now.
