Bottle Palm Tree

Our bottle palm has three growths coming from the trunk that look like rhinoceros horns. One is now about 24 inches long. They are coming from the trunk. What are they? Thanks!

This appears to be the close cousin of the bottle palm, called the Spindle palm. Those growths are going to bloom into flowers, and eventually a fruit. Here is an article with information about the tree: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/spindle-palm/growing-spindle-palm-trees.htm
