Ponytail Palm Care

View Full Planting & Care Instructions
sun shining


Plant your Ponytail Palm in an area that receives full sun (6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day).

drops of water


Water your Palm 2-3 times per week for the first month, then once a week for the remainder of the first year after planting. Keep the soil moist but well-drained, watering more in times of drought and less when there is rainfall.



If necessary, use a palm-specific fertilizer for your Palm. Slow-release fertilizer is best to allow the smaller root system to uptake what it needs. Apply close to the base and start in spring/follow specific fertilizer instructions.

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 6-8 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 in your landscape, 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.

Large wide outdoor variety of ponytail palm

This ponytail palm arrived safely and in good condition. It is five feet wide with straight fronds that stick out. This is a good outdoor tree for landscaping, in hot southern states. The photos are from when I just received it and took it out of the box.
