Ponytail Palm

Regular price

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. 
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. 
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. 
Ponytail Palms are safe for cats and dogs.
Native to the dry regions of Mexico, this succulent gets its name from the long, curly leaves that hang from its swollen brown trunk. The trunk bulges when it stores water and shrivels when its resources are depleted. While it can slowly grow up to 6 feet indoors, its unique silhouette and petite size add worthy flair to any room.
Active exposure to and care for plants has many proven wellbeing benefits, such as: 
  • Lower stress levels
  • Improved mood
  • Superior mental clarity and focus
Ponytail Palms are fantastic air purifiers, absorbing common indoor toxins like benzene, and formaldehyde. Plus, they create oxygen to help us breathe and sleep better. 
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.
