Scientific Name: Beaucarnea recurvata
The incredibly care-easy Ponytail Palm brings its water storage super-power wherever it goes: it's bulbous trunk. This Mexican stunner sprouts countless thin leaves from it's center, 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 are made with water retaining coconut peat mixture and real moss, keeping the roots of the plants moist.
Dimensions: Approx 15-20cm high, Ball Ø approx 25cm
Lead Time: We like to send you the healthiest, freshest Plants, and your mossball is made specifically for you. Kindly note that we can have a lead time of up to 1 week. Trust us, it's worth the wait!
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.
