Pony tail palms are pet friendly, like medium to bright light but doesn’ enjoy lots of hot sun. These guys like crowded roots so transplanting isn’t necessary for a long time. Leave the soil to go 3/4 dry( only a bit of moisture left in the pot near the drainage holes) then give it a large watering until the pot is wet and heavy- then drain all the extra water away , and place back .
