The most characteristic feature of the Ponytail Palm, otherwise known as the ‘Elephant’s Foot’, is the pronounced base of the trunk. The trunk serves as a water reservoir against dry spells, allowing the tree to go up to 4 weeks without water. Excellent in low or higher lighting conditions, but truly thrives in bright filtered light.
Water this plant 1-2 times per week. Place in medium to bright indirect light and maintain between 60-80F.
