Ponytail palm

We moved a Ponytail Palm for a client and in doing so some of the leaves (the whole top) broke off. What care should be taken to ensure that it grows again? Note: it is a very large Ponytail Palm, and has two main stems each with several smaller stems. It is on 2 of these smaller stems that the “heads” broke off. Will it grow again where it broke off, or should one do something to prepare the stem to grow again?

You don’t need to do anything special. Just maintain good watering and light, and the ponytail should sprout some new heads just below the broken spot.
