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

Before you add it to your collection of tropical palms, did you know that the Ponytail Palm is neither a palm nor a tree? It’s actually a succulent part of the Agave family, a quality that makes it particularly forgiving of irregular and infrequent waterings.

Native to the deserts in southeastern Mexico, the Ponytail Palm uses its sturdy trunk to store water.
