Product Details
Beaucarnea recurvata

The Ponytail Palm, also known as a Bottle Palm Tree or Elephant Foot Tree, is neither a palm nor a tree. This houseplant is a type of succulent from the Agave family, native to dry regions of eastern Mexico. The Ponytail Palm gets its name from the long curling leaves that grow similar in appearance to a ponytail from the top of the trunk. The Ponytail Palm stump stores water at its base and tapers up into a thin stem. One or more rosettes of long, green leaves develop from the top of the dome as the indoor plant matures. Foliage can reach three feet in length indoors and double outdoors.

Ponytail Palms are popular houseplants due to their forgiving nature and lush long leaves. Known as the easiest "palm" to grow indoors, these easy-to-care-for plants don't require much to grow beautifully. Ponytail Palms are happiest in bright spots and prefer indirect sunlight, however they can be acclimated to full sun exposure. The soil can be kept fairly dry, allow the top two inches of soil to dry completely between waterings since the bulbous trunk stores the plants water source. Ponytail Palms are great for plant parents who don’t have as much time to spend on their plants as they would like.
