Q.Ponytail Not Green
I have several vibrant ponytails..however , this newly planted one , lacks the vibrant green color , that my others have. Also yellow specks, the leaves are not droopy, just, bland.it is in a good sized pot, with drainage, I am in Florida, it is outside, wintertime , so it is not overwatered, It was not that vibrant when I purchased, it’s a double, unique shape, but just dull compared to my other 5. how can i “GREEN IT UP”?? and bring it up to snuff ? thank you very much.

It may have a chewing pest or spider mites. Spray it with Neem oil at weekly intervals. Also, it looks like the container is too large; downsizing the amount of soil should help keep it from getting too much water. In the spring, give it a dose of houseplant fertilizer and see if that helps the color. You can fertilize it monthly during the growing season.
