When to propagate
I have a 5' tall Ponytail palm that has 4-5 pups at the base.The pups are about 6-7 inches tall . When should I take them or maybe more importantly, how would you recommend I ""detach"" them. I've had this palm for 4 1/2 yrs. It was potted prior to my mom giving it to me for around 6 yrs. It really took off once I took it out of the pot !!!

The pups of ponytail palm can be cut off the mother plant at any time as long as they have some roots attached. The best time, however, is when they're ready to go into a growth cycle, as in early spring.
