Photo of pruned Ponytail Palm (beaucarnea recurvata)
I had this ponytail palm that was getting a little leggy for my liking, so I cut the 4 branches back and was amazed by how many heads sprouted from each cut. I left about 15 heads to grow. Very pleased I decided to prune mine... I just don't like the long "stretched-out neck" look I see around on so many in-ground ponytails. Who's with me??
