Container Ponytail Palm Trees

Cutting the Top From a Ponytail Palm

Anonymous added on May 29, 2017 | Answered

I have had my ponytail palm about 28 years. It has grown so tall, the new growth fronds are almost touching the ceiling. It has 3 branches. Several years ago I cut the top from one and tried to replant it. Nothing grew, not even new fronds from the old branch. I am attaching a photo showing it on my balcony, where it lives about 5 months of the year. What options do I have? Is there a way to keep my palm or, do I need to start searching for a new home for it?
