Beaucarnea - Pony Tail Plant

The "Beaucarnea nolina" or  "Pony Tail Plant" is a Mexican native and makes an excellent addition to any home with its sleek bulb-like trunk and long, lush curly leaves. 

Oddly enough, a ponytail palm tree is neither a palm nor a tree. In fact, it is a member of the Agave family and is actually a succulent.

It requires pretty low maintenance, making it ideal for any novice plant owners.

Care Instructions: 

  • It likes a bright but indirectly bright spot.
  • Its thick trunk stores moisture allowing it to tolerate drought so let the top inch or two of soil to dry out between waterings.
  • Water significantly less in the winter months.

Care Level Rating: Easy 

Notes: This is a smaller bulb trunk variety
