Q.What to do about the new growth on the stalk of the ponytail palm?
My ponytail palm has bloomed twice in the last couple of years or so. It’s quite beautiful, This year it had 3 flower stalks bloom. This plant is growing like crazy, there must be a good 20 new growths on the stalk. Is that okay or is there something I need to be doing? I’ve tried pinching them off, but I tell you as soon as I do there’ll be three more popping out the next day. I’ve replanted it and to be honest I have no idea what else to do. Do you have any suggestions?

That is ok. They are just pups and are how the plant propagates itself. This article will help you with removing them and starting them, if you would like. You can always share them with friends. :)
