Container Ponytail Palm Trees
Q.

Ponytail palm

Zone Deltona Fl | King3428 added on July 24, 2016 | Answered

I recently purchased a home in Central Florida. In the backyard is a 6 foot tall ponytail palm. There were several plants within a foot of the base of the plant that were about 8-12" tall and looked identical to the ponytail. Could the plants be ponytails or is it more likely a similar looking grass? Thanks in advance!

I can't say for sure from your description.
Perhaps the previous homeowner planted the pups into the soil around the plant.
