Slow-growing and easy to care for, the Ponytail Palm is a drought-tolerant houseplant ideal for new plant parents or those with little time for extensive plant care routines.

Native to the deserts in southeastern Mexico, the Ponytail Palm has a knack for storing water in its hardy trunk, which makes it particularly forgiving of irregular and infrequent waterings. Neither a palm nor a tree, this plant is actually a succulent part of the Agave family.

Earning its name from its long leaves that grow from the top of the trunk to look like a ponytail, the Mini Ponytail Palm is a must-have for any plant owner. It’s perfectly content being watered every couple of weeks and left alone to soak up the sunlight.

Unlike buying a plant from a box store, your Bloomscape plant arrives fully-grown as pictured and pre-potted. We’ve spent a lot of time selecting pots that have optimal drainage, look great, and come with a saucer so your floor or desk won’t get ruined. All you have to do is unpack your plant and find the perfect spot for it in your home.

Fully Grown & Healthy

Fully Grown + Healthy

Most of the time when you buy houseplants, they are partially grown and kept in less than ideal conditions. With Bloomscape, our houseplants are grown and cared for in our greenhouses by plant experts until the day we ship them to you. That way, your plants arrive fully-grown, healthy, and ready for you to enjoy.
