Container Ponytail Palm Trees

Q.Why has the growing tip of ponytail palm died?

ckhoch190 added on October 2, 2015 | Answered

This plant is about 30 years old and has grown steadily until this summer. I moved it from a bright location to a dim location – and probably started watering on a more regular basis. So I suspect rot. At least two dozen of the leaves at the tip became yellow where they attached and are very flimsy. When I noticed this (probably weeks to months after it began), I was able to slip those leaves off the plant, leaving greenery below and a bare growing tip that is not growing. It is also not drying up. I just noticed that a pup is growing just below the live layer of leaves. Is there any hope for the growing tip?
