The Beaucarnea recurvata, also known as the Ponytail Palm or Bottle Palm, is a bulbous plant with lush, curling leaves native to the dry regions of eastern Mexico. The Ponytail Palm is a type of succulent and received its name from its long, green leaves resembling a palm tree. This is a popular houseplant due to its forgiving nature and unique appearance. Ponytail Palms prefer indirect sunlight and only need to be watered when the top two inches of soil feels dry. Its ability to grow well with indirect light and infrequent watering makes it a great choice for beginner plant parents.
The Ponytail Palm prefers to have as much natural light as possible. Place in a bright location where it will receive plenty of indirect sunlight.
The bulbous stem of the Ponytail Palm naturally stores water making it a drought tolerant plant. We suggest watering once every 2-3 weeks and allowing the soil to drain and dry.
Native to the arid climate of Eastern Mexico, the Ponytail Palm prefers temperatures above 65º F.
A very light feeder, apply a balanced houseplant fertilizer at half strength once every 1 - 3 months.
