Too tall Ponytail Palm
My ponytail plant is over 15 years old and is as tall as my ceiling. Can I save it some how. I can't keep it as tall as it is, it is starting to bend over at the top. Can I cut it some where. It only has greenery on the top portion, the bottom is just trunk. Mag

Pruning the top off is not really recommended. This leaves the stem open to disease and can rot easily. I do know that some have done so and in some cases the plant will began to grow from the cut.
If your willing to risk losing the plant make the cut where you would want new growth to began.
