About a year ago my palm started having the red growths that are covered with tiny white flowers. It is getting more and more of this growth. Is this normal? It seems to be taking over the tree. Also, now the remainder of the cut leaf base that is on the trunk of the palm has started falling off and the trunk is now smooth. This is my first Bismarck, so I want to know if this is normal.

Don't worry, this is all normal behavior for the Bismarck palm. It is an unusual but beautiful palm species.
