Q.Ponytail Palm Fronds Damaged

Zone 53711 | Anonymous added on December 13, 2023 | Answered

I moved a couple of months ago, and at least 50% of the fronds at the top of the plant were bent/creased over. The have not browned and the plant seems to be doing well but looks odds with bent fronds. Is there any remedy or will they eventually straighten? Alternately, can I remove the bent fronds and expect the plant to fill in?

You can trim them off where it creases, like you would trim off browned edges, to tidy the plant.
