A strong wind has twisted off the top of the ponytail (well established plant in a pot). Can it be saved? Will it shoot from same site?

A Ponytail Palm may began sending shoots out of the broken area, but it also can mean the death of the plant. This open wound can invite disease or fungus into the plant.
Though I have heard of some success with rooting a broken top of Ponytails, it is not likely to reroot in most cases.
