Scientific Name: Beaucarnea recurvata
Synonyms: Ponytail Palm, Elephant's Foot
Comes in a 14cm or 20cm Nursery Pot.
Often mistaken for a palm (hence the common name), this odd-looking plant is actually semi-succulent, making it the ideal plant for a bright hot space where other Palms would not survive indoors or even on a balcony. It will however happily live in lower light if provided with some direct sunlight for some hours of the day.
This quirky plant is super easy to take care of and, as its swollen base stores water, it is a great water-wise plant. For plant lovers that are a little forgetful about watering, this plant is ideal! It is a slow grower under the best circumstances, so a little patience is required.
Ponytail Palms look majestic paired with an unadorned planter or classical Terracotta with its long slender foliage making a fantastic fountain-like feature.
Please note: Pony Tail Palms are non-toxic to pets and humans.
Follow these instructions to keep your Pony Tail Palm happy and healthy.
