Q.Ponytail Palm Rot
I was gone for a few months and my caretaker severely overwater my ponytail palm causing it to get root rot and its almost dead. Is there any way to save it? It has no pups, but has several tufts on top.

Did you try repotting it in fresh soil and clean container? If the bulb is mushy, there is probably no hope, but if the top still looks good, I would cut off a tuft close to the trunk or as far as healthy wood, and let it callous for two or three days. Then dip it in rooting hormone and plant it in a well-draining cactus soil to root.
