Ponytail Palm

| /

Name: Beaucarnea recurvata

AKA: Bottle Palm Tree, Elephant Foot Tree

Why we love it: This wild-growing palm has become popular in the last few years for good reason. It's an easy to care for plant with a distinctive bulbous stalk and curly foliage. Despite its name, the ponytail palm tree is neither a palm nor a tree, but actually is part of the agave family, making it a succulent; weird right?

Light: Bright indirect light, can tolerate outdoor shade in the summer.

Water: Allow this plant to dry out almost completely between waterings.

Pet Friendly? Yes, this plant is pet safe!

Plants are sold in their nursery pots. Ceramic pots and baskets are sold separately.
