The incredibly care-easy Ponytail Palm brings its water storage super-power wherever it goes: its bulbous trunk. This Mexican stunner sprouts countless thin leaves from its centre, giving it the appearance of a pony's tail. 

The dramatic 'plumage' of Beaucarnea is best appreciated if it is placed in an unencumbered location, where all of its fronds can hang freely. Fun Fact: The Ponytail Palm is neither a palm nor a tree. It is, in fact, part of the Agave family, and is a succulent!

Hand-tied in the classic Japanese Kokedama technique our Mossballs is made with water retaining coconut peat mixture and real moss, keeping the roots of the plants moist. 

Approx 15-20cm high, Ball √ė approx 25cm¬†

Mossballs can be installed in two ways: Suspended or Standing.

All of our Mossballs come with free extra cord and a carabiner.
Install a U-Shaped hook, attach the cord with carabiner, and simply clip in your mossball.

For a standing installation, simply place your Mossball within a presentation-dish on whichever surface you like. 

Top Tip: Try a Japanese-inspired Mossball Installation by hanging 3 or more Mossballs, at different heights. Use the same Mossball variety to create a statement, or mix them up for a more motley effect. Check out our Mossball Collection to see what's in stock.
