Ok, first things first. Do NOT remove anything more than dead fronds and fruits. These palms look best when they look majestic, not like a pineapple. Second, fertilize with 8-2-12 palm fert as directed by U of F. Do this 4 times/year as these are heavy feeders here. Potassium and Mg deficiencies are most common and can take a year plus to correct once they have these. Third, this is a desert palm so the less irrigation the better. Third, when pruning make sure tools are sanitized as these can get Fusarium and the way that is spread is by unclean tools.
