Water ponytail offcut

Asked April 26, 2017, 11:20 AM EDT

Hi,

We've followed your instructions cutting off and rooting our ponytail palm shoot, along with dipping in in Rootone and covering it in plastic. How often should we water in this period?

Thank you,

You have created a mini-greenhouse environment and this provides a moist environment. Water only when the upper soil surface dries to the touch. Do not over water or the plant will rot. Keep out of the sun or the plant will bake.
