Ponytail Palm

Ponytail Palm


The ponytail palm has become a popular houseplant and it is easy to see why. Its sleek bulb-like trunk and lush, long curly leaves make it visually stunning, and the fact that it is forgiving and easy in its care makes this an ideal houseplant for many people. Surprisingly, this plant is neither a palm or a tree and is actually part of the Agave family making it classed as a succulent. This makes caring for it extremely easy as it needs little watering because it stores the water in its bulbous 'trunk' and loves to be root bound in its pot.
