Ponytail Palm Tree


tsickler38@gmail.com added on January 23, 2016 | Answered

My tree grew to about six feet tall and it starting to die back. It has grown two babies out of lower side of stalk. What do I do? I believe that I probably was over watering it. I have cut down the stalk. Thanks

Make sure you are allowing the soil to dry out between waterings.
Root Rot will take place if over watered or if the plant sits in soggy soil.

The pups of a Ponytail Palm can be easily removed and repotted into new pots.
If you have cut the stalk of the main plant and it is showing signs of stress it may be to late to save your plant.
Cutting down the main stalk is not recommended for this plant.
