Ponytail Yucca was left outside below 30° for 2 nights‼️ Please tell me it will come back!!
You don't say how much below 30 degrees F, but they are hardy to zone 9, so they should be able to withstand 20 degrees F. However, that is planted in the ground. But that does give hope.

My cat jumped ontop of my ponytail palm and has flattened the leaves at the top, they are now droopy and flattened. Is there a way to revive the leaves?
If they are just flattended but not broken they should perk up on their own, similar to storm damage. Inspect the leaves to see if they are bent or broken. If so, you might try taping them.
My ponytail palm is in a container on porch and is hitting the ceiling.Can I cut the top off? What other option do I have do not have a yard.
It is not recommended to cut the tops off of these plants because the trunk would probably rot before any new foliage grew. Is there a spot inside your home that has a taller ceiling than by the front door? It is an amazing plant; I'm sure you are very proud of it.
If you can reach it, you can trim the top leaves back to force them to grow downward. That could give it a little more headroom.
You can always sell it or give it to a friend with a taller ceiling and start over with a small plant.

nsport on the highway and it lost its "top." See additional details for more. "Top" has grown back, and more besides! I am watering once per month, which was recommended. The ponytail palm tree has not only grown a new "top," it has literally exploded with new growth! For at least the past year. Sprouts and growth coming through the bulb in the bottom of the plant (4 or 5 which are pretty large now; sprouts along the single stem from bottom to top, etc. I may have watered it too much, but is the plant ruined? It certainly looks quite hearty and healthy! Inside in a pot but gets lots of light. Any advice you can provide on the state of this tree? Any other advice you can provide for repotting? I have basic instructions and what to use for soil mixture, etc. Also the pot into which it will be transplanted is a bit too deep. Okay to place rocks for extra drainage in the bottom?
You can use the same pot if you like and just refresh the soil.
Or you can repot into a container that is one size larger. Rocks in the bottom of a container are no longer recommended.
Here is info on repotting:
tered and for how many days. This ponytail was 6 years old and 4 feet tall, As it had only one central shoot, I have pruned it so that the plant can give multiple shoots from its base.
Wait at least a week before watering to give it time to heal.

It is non-toxic if eaten. Here is more:
I have a large ponytail tree pushing into the wall of my house. It's about 46 years old. The base has about 3 large bulbs. Two of them have partially separated on their own. Can you separate the bulbs to re plant them or would that kill it? I need to get this tree off the side of my house. I'm not sure if it's too big to move. The bark on some of the branches is flaking (rotting off) and I don't know if this is a sign my tree is dying.
You don't say how large it is, but if you think you can dig up the bulbs and get most of the root balls you may be able to transplant it. Something needs to be done, it sounds like, so you may as well try, or call a professional to move it. Here are tips on transplanting:
