Can I cut off all the leaves on a ponytail palm bonsai tree? I had purchased a ponytail palm bonsai tree. All the leaves on it turned brown. I don't know why. But I cut them all down. Now all the leaves are falling down like they are about to fall off. My question is could I totally cut the tip of the palm off? Will it regrow??

Overwatering is most likely the issue, Ponytail Palms are sensitive to overwatering.
