We have a Ponytail Palm that is probably 20 years old at least. Four years ago we moved to a house on a lake and ever since that move, the palm has been leaning A LOT in the direction of the lake. It is in a pot and has some serious Arizona late afternoon sun. If the trunk was not leaning so badly, it would most likely be about 7-8 feet tall. My questions are:
1. Should OR Could we try to straighten it up? The "arms" are about 4-5 feet long as they lean out.
2. What causes this? I would think water but they are in a pot or sun but it gets serious afternoon sun, so I have no idea why they are doing this? I have attached pictures for your viewing enjoyment.
