Care info

Sun: The Ponytail Palm requires bright and indirect light. Place it in your brightest room, near an east, west, or south-facing window and out of direct sun rays.

Water: The bulging trunk of this palm stores water, making it drought-tolerant. Allow the soil to fully dry in between waterings. On occasion, you can water them deeply, allowing all excess water to drain out. Be sure to reduce frequency during the fall and winter.

Air: Their native environment is warm and dry, so average indoor air tends to work well. Keep them in temperatures between 60º-85º and away from sources of humidity.

Spiritual Interpretation

Ponytail Palms represent free and strong-willed spirits. Their perseverance and resourcefulness allow them to thrive as one of the most unique plants that exist. Their hardiness and resilience under negligence make them the perfect gift for a traveler.

Plant Lifecycle

This lifelong plant is a slow grower, reaching about 6 feet tall indoors over its years. The trunk bulges when it stores water and shrivels when it's depleted.

This plant may grow pups (mini plants) on its trunk which can be pruned with a clean knife and repotted. For optimal health, use a loose, well-draining soil and a planter with a drainage hole.
