I have a ponytail palm which looks healthy enough and is getting new shoots up the middle but it is looking very strange because each palm leaf is not curving and draping as it should. Most of the palms on my plant are drastically bending at the top which gives it a totally different look than the pretty curved look it should have. Is this a winter thing? I keep it inside year round and have had it for ten years. Should I repot it, should I be trimming it or leave it alone? I do trim the brown tips when I see them come out. Should I be doing even that? Any information you can give me would be appreciated. I do not want to lose this plant.

I suspect that though the plant does well in low light conditions, it may need more sunlight.
Bright indirect sunlight, especially in the spring and summer growing months is recommended.
