The Q&A Archives: what is a tall white growth on top of my ponytail plant?

Question: My plant developed a branch of white cluster on top of it. All the leaves are bent in the downward position. It looks like the top leaves are pushed down, the tall branch is pushing them down. What is it and what do I do with it.
Thank You,

Answer: Rosemary,

Very strange. That sounds like some type of bloom/fruiting structure. I suggest you take a photo or two and show them to the horticulturist at your local County Extension Office. They may be able to assess it better with a visual. Their contact info is:

Lee County Extension, 3406 Palm Beach Blvd, Ft. Myers, FL 33916-3736
Phone: (239) 533-4327 Fax: (239) 485-2305

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
