The fronds should be left on the Palm until they die back to the stem if at all possible.
Once the fronds are mostly brown is the best time to cut them off.
It is ok to cut them off if damaged or if they start to bend down or earlier for esthetics if you wish.
It is best to cut them off as close to the trunk of the palm as possible.
The Seed pods can be cut off in the same manner or sooner if you wish.
