My potted ponytail palm
I have had these palms for years and they first started out as a bonsai arrangement. Once they got big enough I separated them into their own pots and they seem to be thriving. A couple weeks ago though my ferret somehow got up to the high point I put my plants and fished one of them out of the pot and had a good chew on the bulb. Can it survive this? I am not sure if it is ok yet but it hasn't died.
Also, I bought one of those pony tail palm trees the ones with a long curved trunk, the top was cut off and surrounding the cut is a bunch of outgrowths. It looks like this: https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-GFp8diwoSUM/TXZQv-xgwoI/AAAAAAAAEaw/-Gn5KUsjX_U/IMG_0703.jpg
Its not as lush as before I was wondering what could I do to help it, I am assuming my soil is inadequate and it could use fertlizing.
