When to trim mule palm inflorescence?

Cool Mule

Recommended Posts

We installed three field grown mules back in June and they finally seem to be getting established.  Our largest is growing two pods/spathes/inflorescence (not sure what the right term is before they bloom). See picture of one thats about 3 feet long. The other just emerged and is about a foot. 


Should these be pruned before they flower to direct more energy to frond production?  If so, at what point in their growth cycle should they be removed?


Thanks for the help!
