Planting Queen Palms

Is it all right to plant a pair of queen palms within 3' from each other?

In Florida, they are usually planted in clumps of 2 or 3. They actually have a very small and shallow root structure relative to the height.

Thanks. I will plant them in clumps. They will look 'fuller' as well.
I've had several planted in individual 24" terra cotta planters for 20 years now and they don't seem to be doing too well. I would like to transplant them into the ground now where they can hopefully thrive.
