An easy to care for and interesting plant, nothing beats the Ponytail Palm's 'mad professor' look! It is considered to be a succulent tree as its large bulbous stem can store a lot of water. With long strappy leaves that seem to erupt from the top of its stem, the Ponytail Palm reminds us of a certain theoretical physicist!
The Ponytail Palm is a plant that is easy to care for. It’s very hardy and can handle a bit of neglect. However, the best conditions for this plant to thrive would be partial sun or bright indirect light. As it is a succulent tree, be careful not to overwater the plant. Allow the soil to dry out in between waterings.
The Ponytail Palm is really easy to care for and makes an interesting home companion. You may even get a new best friend while sharing secrets and braiding each other's hair!
Important to know: As plants are natural products, form, pattern and colour will vary.
