Ponytail Palm (Elephant Foot Plant or beaucarnea recurvata) Large
Such a fun plant to have - who can hold back a smile when looking at that ponytail!
Despite its name Ponytail palm is not really that much related to the true palms (or ponies). Makes a great houseplant as it's extremely hardy - this plant keeps water in the swollen base, that reminds an elephant foot, and grows from those onion-like bulbs, that younger plants have.
In its natural habitat in Mexico it can grow to be up to crazy 9 metres tall, but indoors it will probably grow to be around 1.5 metres, so not going to entirely take over your place :)
This is an almost fully grown version of the plant, it comes in 27 cm pot and is approx 80 cm tall.
Requires at least a few hours of direct sun every day. This plant will not tolerate low light conditions.
Min light 400 FC, Good Growth - 800 FC
Water: Low. If in doubt, let it drought as this plant prefer to be in a dry soil. You can care for you Ponytail Palms as it was a cacti or a succulent.
Pets: Non-toxic to both dogs and cats.
