Trimming ponytail palm

I have a ponytail palm indoors in a 6 inch pot. The strands are too long and I have no convenient place to put it. How do I trim it and how much? Thanks.

The leaves on ponytail palm often become brown at their tips, eventually turning completely brown as they age. I usually trim off the brown tips every so often as they develop. It's best to prune off just the brown sections because any green leaf tissue is feeding the plant. However, if you must trim more, you can do so by cutting on an angle for a more natural pointed appearance to the leaf tip.
