Container Ponytail Palm Trees

Q.I’ve disturbed the root ball of my ponytail palm in repotting. What do I do; will it die?

How can I stimulate the ponytail palm to regrow a root system? It’s only got a few still attached that weren’t disturbed during repotting process. I love this plant I had it for 2 years.

If there is any root exposed, treat it with rooting powder and return the plant to a bed of well-drained potting soil. Moisten it, then allow it to dry out, and repeat. This should encourage the plant to form healthy roots again. Perhaps this article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/ponytail-palm/how-to-move-ponytail-palms.htm
