Ponytail Palm – Beaucarnea recurvata
Native to arid regions in Mexico, the ponytail palm, in its natural habitat, can tower over houses.
As a specimen plant indoors, it is extremely unique. Ponytail palms are most attractively planted in shallow dishes. They can grow to about 6 feet indoors. This interesting plant will occasionally sprout little offsets. These can be removed and planted individually, however a mature clump of ponytail palms growing atop one another is a highly prized possession among plant enthusiasts:
Light: Ponytail Palms enjoy bright light and can be acclimated to full sun. Keep in a bright to sunny spot
Water: During the growing season (spring/summer) water weekly. In dormant times (fall/winter) water sparingly – once a month. Water is stored in the bulbous trunk so it is drought tolerant. Do not overwater.
+So easy to take care of! This plant can take lots of abuse – it is a Palm Room favorite+
+no parts of this plant are known to be poisonous if injested+
