Container Ponytail Palm Trees

Propagating Ponytail Palm


Kitty Corbett added on August 19, 2016 | Answered

My ponytail palm, now at 11 feet, is too tall to bring inside for winter. It has produced a leafy shoot about halfway up and I would like to cut the trunk just above that shoot, leaving half the trunk, all new growth and the foot with all its roots to continue. Is there a good chance that if I coat the cut end of the upper part of the trunk with ferti-lome rooting powder and repot that end, that it would take root? The upper part of the plant also has abundant leaves. Objective being to have a more or less matched pair of manageable five-foot ponytail palms instead of the one which has become almost unmanageable. Any advice for me? Kitty Corbett, Aiken, SC
