Q.Options for a 20yr old pony tail palm
20yrs ago I purchased a 9” potted ponytail palm (actually 3 in one pot). I split them about 8 yrs ago into 3 pots and they have all thrived. One especially is now 12’ tall and out growing my living room and it’s current 20” pot. I’m thinking I don’t have many options as it is so big now. Any ideas?

No, there aren't many options. It is not recommended to cut it back because you would just leave a stump that is open to disease before it could regrow any leaves.
You can give it away or sell it and enjoy the shorter ones you have.
