Q.Ponytail palm

Zone Schenectady, N.Y. 12303 | Lois Baker added on August 2, 2017 | Answered

Love my ponytail, but would like to encourage the foot to grow larger, faster and more gnarly.

The plant is about 14 to 18 inches tall, depending on whether you measure from the top of trunk or top of arching fronds. It was pruned so it has 3 branches (purchased at a big box home center about 2 years ago). I have it planted in a shallow 8-inch clay pot, in a mixture of cactus and potting soil. It seems to do well inside in the dark winter months and on my enclosed front porch with bright, but indirect light. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, Lois
