Long, slender, strappy green leaves emerge in a gorgeous fountain-like tuft from a dramatic looking trunk. Its unique appearance, low maintenance requirements and resilience make it an excellent choice for beginners. 

Despite its common name the Ponytail Palm is not a true palm, it is actually a member of the Agave family. It comes from the dry regions of Mexico and uses its bulbous trunk for storing water. 

Ponytail Palms are slow growing and can live for several decades when properly cared for, with some specimens known to last for over 100 years.

Prefers very bright, indirect sunlight so will do well in the sunniest room in the house - near a window but not directly in the sun is perfect.

Ponytail Palms can go several weeks without water so water sparingly as they are highly susceptible to overwatering. Allow it to dry out between waterings and ensure the plant is never standing water as it will rot.

It does however, love regular light misting. Reduce watering in winter as the plant goes into a period of dormancy and requires less moisture.

Brown leaf tips may occur - this is usually due to environmental factors such as low humidity or overwatering. You can trim them if you wish, however it is not necessary for plant health. 

Ponytail Palms have a shallow root system so will go perfectly in bonsai or other shallow pots where they can absorb moisture quickly to store in the plant’s bulbous base.
