The Ponytail Palm is not actually a palm but a succulent in the Agave family, this native of Southeastern Mexico also goes by the names bottle palm and elephants foot because of its bulbous base. Ponytails make great indoor bonsai’s and are ideal for beginners who desire a slow-growing, low maintenance plant. Considered extremely hardy, they do well in either bright, indirect, or full sun; making it a plant to sit back and enjoy. Simply providing light and water will ensure that this plant will flourish for years. The Ponytail prefers to have dry soil before watering and it is best to allow them to get a little root bound before potting them up, especially if you want to bonsai them. Fertilize a couple of times a year with light liquid fertilizer. Shipping and handling can be very tough on live plants so please be sure to open and check your plant right away. Mist the foliage and check the soil for moisture. Our plant team gives each plant a drink before they are individually shipped and wrapped so they may not need to be watered right away. Overwatering is one of the most common causes of the decline in indoor plants. We are unable to ship this plant to California due to restrictions by the California Department of Agriculture. Please be aware that our plants are not intended for consumption by humans or animals. There are no other authorized sellers of American Plant Exchange plants.
