The fronds get moldy and I prefer the palm when it’s cut back.

Disease is the reason that it had to be cut back in the first place, I assume. IN these cases, it will bush out with a multibranched shrub. To return it to shape, you can, simply, trim all but one main arm. Leave this to grow, and remove some lower fronds as it matures.
