indoor house plant: pony tail palm
I have had a pony tail palm since 1976 without problems 3 ft tall I moved in august leaving it in the car in the sun and it really did damage. all the leaves have fallen or had to be pruned leaving only the large bulb and stalk. it produced some new leaves however they fell off. the top six inches of stem appear withering. I am distraught. This plant is like a family member to me. I think of myself as neglectful and am paying a high price for my plant neglect. Any way to revive my pony tail palm and family member? Is there a pony tail plant society or specialists that grow this plant. I need expert help Louise Meyer [email protected]

"The top six inches of stem withering" is a dire sign. All you can do is give it some time and TLC and see if it recovers. And if mine I would put a dash of Superthrive in the watering can.
