Container Ponytail Palm Trees

Ponytail Palm

Zone Zone 7 | Doris Rogers added on August 12, 2015 | Answered

A friend wants to give me her ponytail palm, which is quite large. I'm afraid it may be too tall (8 1/2 foot ceiling here) for my house. Can you trim some of the leaves at the top to remove height?

I would suggest not trying to prune the plant to adjust height.
