Product Description

A Unique Indoor Palm That's Hassle-Free

Why Ponytail Palms?

Ponytail Palms are becoming a popular, must-have house plant. Why? For starters, their unique tropical look makes them second to none. The Ponytail is also known as the ‘Elephant Foot Palm’ because it has the shape and texture of an elephant’s foot, as well as attractive gray bark that complements its lush green leaves.

And during summer, hundreds of tiny white blooms grace the stalk above the crown for an eye-catching floral display.

As a container palm, the Ponytail Palm can fit anywhere. Since it only grows to around 3 feet tall indoors, it’s perfect for placing on tables or countertops and in corners, lending an exotic feel to an array of spaces. During the warmer months, Ponytail Palms can be placed outdoors to greet guests with one-of-a-kind beauty.

Because of their manageable size, they can fit perfectly under utility lines and close to structures, making them the prime palm for any job. And Ponytail Palms store water in their trunks, drawing on it as needed, leaving you with little to no maintenance.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Ponytail Palms will thrive in a variety of conditions - in cooler climates they will like a full sun location, and in warmer areas they will prefer some afternoon shade. Ponytail Palms can tolerate almost any soil type but prefer well-draining areas.

After choosing your location, dig a hole that is three times as big around as the container the palm came in (the root ball) and just as deep. Place the plant in the hole so that the top of the root ball is even with the surrounding soil. Then, back fill, tamp down and water to settle the roots. Mulch the planting area when done to conserve moisture and protect the roots from temperature fluctuation.

For indoors growth, choose a container that is two times larger than the one the plant initially arrived in. Fill the container part way and place the palm in the container so that the soil is just below the top of the container and fill the remainder of the way. Water until it begins to flow through the bottom drainage holes. Let the soil dry out almost completely - they can can go up to two weeks without being watered.

2. Watering: Ponytail Palms are very drought tolerant, whether they are in a container or in the ground. Water them when the soil is almost completely dry.

3. Pruning: Simply remove yellow or damaged fronds.

4. Fertilizing: Young trees do not need to be fertilized until after they grow a new spear (about 2 months). After that, they will perform best when fertilized with a slow-release fertilizer, such a 10-5-10 formula, in the spring and summer.
