Ponytail Palm Trees

Ponytail


Steven Krusec added on June 7, 2016 | Answered

I have a very large ponytail beside a fence line, which is pushing the garden fence over. I am wondering can I cut the base, approximately 6 to 8 inches, and will this cause stress to the plant? Will the scar cover over or do I need to re-position the plant away from the fence line. The ponytail has been in the position for approximately 15 years. Thanks Steve K Bribie Island QLD

No, cutting into the bulb or base of your Ponytail Palm would most likely lead to the death of your plant.
