The Low Maintenance, Unique, Indoor Palm

Ponytail Palms are becoming the popular choice for houseplants because they have a unique tropical look that other palm varieties don’t. Ponytail Palms or ‘Bottle Palms’ have trunks wider at the bottom that lead up to a narrow crown that’s filled with long hair like leaves that grow upwards and arch over, often sweeping to the ground. 

The Ponytail Palm is often referred to as the ‘Elephant Foot Palm’ because it has the shape and texture of an elephant’s foot as well has attractive grey bark that compliments its lush green leaves.  Then in the summer hundreds of tiny white flowers bloom on a stalk above the crown for an eye catching floral display.

As a container palm the Ponytail Palm can fit anywhere. By only growing to about three feet tall indoors it’s perfect for placing on tables or counter tops and in corners to give any space a tropical feel. 

During the warmer months Ponytail Palms can be placed outdoors to liven up porches and patios, and also look great as potted trees for framing entryways. They’ll love greeting your guests with their exotic beauty.

If planted in growing zones 9 – 11 outdoors they can grow up to 15 feet tall to fit perfectly in the landscape to accent gardens or while being used as foundation plantings. They can fit perfectly under utility lines and close to structures, making them the perfect palm for any job.

Ponytail Palms store water in their trunks and act as succulents by drawing on water when they need it, leaving you with little to no maintenance. Sit back and relax as your Pony Tail Palm thrives during periods of extreme heat and drought or low light conditions indoors.

Nice but smaller than expected.
It was in beautiful condition and delivery was great.
However, I expected a larger pony tail. Your photo of it is very deceptive as it appears very large.

Arrived in so-so condition
Plant in 3 gal container was mounted in shipping box via a strong cable tie which was attached very tightly. Many fronds were damaged and fell off at the point of attachment when the plant was unpacked. Fronds still continue to fall off.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Ponytail Palm

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Ponytail Palm .

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Ponytail Palm gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Ponytail Palm again after the transplant is complete.
