Q.Pony Tail Palm Pups

Zone 28636 | guwood added on September 22, 2020 | Answered

My Pony Tail Palm has begun to produce new growth (pups?) on the base of the stalk — not down at the potting soil but up on the bulbus area of the plant. So is it best to just let them grow where they are or should I remove?

It is best to let them grow. They are, simply, branches. Pups will come from the base of the soil, and can be propagated.
