    Hi! I’ve had this ponytail palm for 30+ years. We’ve moved recently-just to a neighboring town in Mass, but since doing so my ponytail palm has developed this issue: the new growth on top on 2 of the stalks is coming out brown and mushy. It isn’t in as sunny of a spot as it was in our previous house, but other than that, I have not done anything (same feeding/watering sked) differently. I only water once a month and do a low amount feed. Is it just homesick or mad at me for moving? Any opinions/suggestions are greatly appreciated!

    Maybe got cold during movement?
    This window is too small for such a large plant.
    Need for water depends on solarization, among many other factors. So less sun means that less water is needed. So be careful, don't over water!

    Hi! I didn’t think of window size...it was in a bigger window at my previous house. I don’t think it caught a cold during the move as it was a beautiful day, but I definitely will move it. Do you think I should water even less frequently than once a month? That is what I do now. Thanks so much for your input; I really appreciate it!
