West Midlands, United Kingdom
We moved into a house which has a cabbage palm in the back garden. It's quite tall (about 8 ft!!!), very slender and is beautiful. Last month I noticed it was very wet around the base and it seemed to be creeping up the trunk, we tried to research the reason for this but couldn't find anything relating to it. I've just checked this evening and the trunk seems to 'splitting' a bit it also seems to be 'swelling' at the base!!! Does anyone know why this is?
