Hey everybody. Nice forum! I just got what I think is a PonyTail palm and I`m really excited about it, but it seems to be a bit different than those shown in most pictures. The difference is this: the trunk(?) seems to have been chopped off and sealed with some kind of goo and all the leaves are shooting off the sides of the trunk. It appears really healthy, but will it stay this way? Will it grow? What`s with the chopping?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
