Q.Ponytail Palm Flower

Zone Largo, Fl, 33774 | Anonymous added on May 28, 2021 | Answered

We live in Florida on the gulf side and we are new to the area. We have a Ponytail Palm that has flowered (6 stems actually on one tree) They are ivory in color so it is a male. Can they be cut off before they finish flowering or will it kill the tree. Any info regarding this would be most appreciated.

I don't believe it will harm the tree. The spikes usually wither on their own after flowering is completed.
