Pony Tail Palm

Zone Houston Tx. 77096 zone9 | Luis Nevarez added on May 31, 2017 | Answered

My palm partially froze last winter, I pruned 2 of the stems, one 2.5 feet, and the second about 18 inches. The plant as a whole is doing great and the stem have so much growth the crown around the top of the stems is really crowded. I need to know what to do with the new growth, do I remove some, let it grow as is or what? thank you.

No, pruning is not recommended.

Do to the damage it will not likely appear as it did prior to the frost damage.
