Ponytail Palm Trees
Q.

ponytail palm offshoot

Zone Simi arid California | logan hubbard added on April 11, 2015 | Answered

Can I take a cutting, not a 'pup,' from a Ponytail Palm tree? I have a Ponytail Palm that is about 8 or 9 foot tall. It has an offshoot growing out of the trunk stem that is about 2-3 ft. tall. Can I cut the stem and transplant it?

I would not advise any attempt at removing this off shoot of your Pony Tail Palm.

I believe this to be a pup that was allowed to continue growing. Your palm looks healthy and I would allow it to continue growing as it is.

I have listed a link about Pony Tail Palm pups.
