Can I use tea tree oil on my ponytail palm
Can I use tea tree oil on my ponytail palm that has a stem that died? I have had a bonsai ponytail palm for 5 years with three stems. One of them died last summer. It was suggested to use neem oil on the stem after I cut it down to the trunk. Can I also use tea tree oil? Thank you!

My recommendation is the Neem OIl, but Tea Tree Oil is a fungicide and antiseptic so I would so no reason not to try it.
You just want to keep the would from attracting and insects or fungus.
