Ponytail Palm


With playful, curled leaves atop a sturdy trunk, the Ponytail Palm is a jazzy indoor plant with style. A slow grower, the Ponytail Palm makes for an ideal desk mate or sunny window sill companion. This plant enjoys basking in direct sun and infrequent watering, so it needs little attention. Your Ponytail Palm may need the occasional “haircut” to remove any brown ends.

Earning its name from its long leaves that grow from the top of the trunk to look like a ponytail, the Ponytail Palm is a fun must-have plant. Neither a palm nor a tree, this plant is actually a succulent and part of the Agave family. The Ponytail Palm is the model no-fuss plant: give it bright light and water infrequently to see it thrive.

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 missed waterings. This plant can be placed in indirect or bright light. Snip any brown tips as they appear to keep the Ponytail Palms’ breezy look intact.
