OK, so I don't really know how to answer this - most people don't prune ponytail palms, and I've never tried to root a piece. But if I had a piece of trunk, or one of the side shoots that sometimes come up, I would put it in wet perlite with a plastic bag over it as a mini-greenhouse, and be very patient. But I do know that this is the only part that could root; the leaves will not. Let me know how your experiment works out.
