Q.Ponytail Palm

Zone 40291 | tilleyh9 added on April 24, 2017 | Answered

Received this plant in February at a funeral. Live in Kentucky. I have kept it in the original pot, in front of a French door and have watered it about every two weeks. It is also in front of a heat/ac vent. Has done great until about a week or so ago. Now leaves are dying. we have had our AC on for about two weeks. This blows directly on this plant and its pot. AM I watering too often OR could it be the cold air affecting it.

Also, now that it is getting warmer here (gets hot and humid here in the summer) would it maybe do better out on my covered deck

Thank You
Louisville KY.

Do not allow air vents to blow directly on a plant.

Avoid overwatering, the bulbous base holds water and watering is minimal.
